Hevesi Opponent Callaghan Makes Huge Leap In Latest Quinnipiac Poll

State Comptroller Alan Hevesi has a 54% to 27% over his Republican challenger Chris Callaghan, who is seeking to unseat Hevesi.

That would sound like good news for Hevesi. But the embattled comptroller's lead in today's Quinnipiac Poll is 11 points narrower than the 59% to 21% lead he held in the previous Q-Poll, released Oct. 4.

Hevesi, of course, has hit some choppy waters in his expected cruise to re-election following the disclosure last month that he had a state employee act as his wife's chauffer on the taxpayer's dime.

Hevesi has apologized and paid back the state for the employee's time, but, as the New York Post reported a couple of days ago, Hevesi appears concerned about a criminal investigation.

Nothing else of note really in the Q-Poll. In the race for governor. Eliot Spitzer still leads Republican John Faso by nearly 50 points.
