Despite recent public polling that shows Hans Tanzler running third in Florida’s 4th Congressional District race, his campaign says it is optimistic as Election Day approaches.

There’s something about the last days of the brutal campaign in Florida’s 4th Congressional District that has candidates pushing out “family values” ads, apparently, as candidates Bill McClure and Hans Tanzler each have ads designed to bolster their positives in this realm.
