Prior to the election, Rabon trailed in polling released by the John W. Pope Civitas Institute. The poll showed Rabon with a 19 point lead over Redwine.[2] Both Rabon and Redwine acknowledge the need for cutting government spending to balance what's expected to be a $3 billion deficit next fiscal year.[3]
