One House race that has not gotten much attention this year is the 5th District in Connecticut, but that might change soon.
Connecticut is a very blue state, but a Republican candidate named George Logan is now leading here.
A Republican winning in Connecticut would definitely be a sign of a red wave.
The Connecticut Mirror reports:
New poll gives GOP challenger George Logan slight edge over Jahana Hayes in 5th District
Republican George Logan has a one-point lead over U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes, D-5th District, in the first public poll in Connecticut’s nationally watched congressional contest.
The poll released Thursday by WTNH/The Hill/Emerson College brands the race a toss up, validating national Republican spending in a blue-state district as the GOP tries to claw back control of Congress.
Logan had a 48% to 47% lead, with 4% undecided, in a survey of 500 likely voters conducted from Oct. 19 to 21. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
“There is a stark gender divide among 5th District voters: 55% of women plan to vote to re-elect Hayes whereas 57% of men plan to vote for Logan,” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling. “In addition, Logan is winning independent votes 53% to 38%.”
That last part about independents is key.

If Logan wins early in the night, that could be a sign of what’s to come in other places.
