“This race is really close. It’s probably going to be a long night,” predicts Fiorina campaign press secretary Andrea Saul to Battle ’10.
Saul says that 3.6 million absentee ballots have been cast. While Democrats have cast more absentee ballots by four percentage points, Saul points out that Democrats have a 14-point advantage in voter registration over Republicans.
“Anecdotally, we’re hearing that there’s a lot of enthusiasm on our side,” said Saul, talking about how the Fiorina campaign has contacted by phone or door-to-door volunteers over 3 million voters in the fall. She also mentioned that one of their offices shares a parking lot with the Democrat office in Simi Valley — which was closed for the day, something the Fiorina campaign views as a good sign.
