Most candidates approach election day with boasts of how their prospects for victory keep getting better. Kenny Johnson is one of them. A couple of days ago his campaign sent out an e-mail blast noting that a poll had found him leading the race for the state's 26th Representative District--no matter that the poll was several weeks old and that the campaign had sent out the exact same announcement (with a different headline) two times previously.

Phillip Jackson, one of Johnson's opponents, has taken a different tack. The message his campaign sent out Tuesday had a subject line that reflected either brutal honesty or genuine surprise at his chances: "Phillip Jackson Has a Shot!!!"
