CNN Poll: McConnell holds slim edge in biggest Senate race of 2014

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell holds a slim four-point edge over his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in a new CNN/ORC International Poll of one of the most closely watched Senate races of 2014.

McConnell's 4-point advantage, 50%-46%, falls within the survey's 4-point sampling error, furthering emphasizing how close this Kentucky contest remains 62 days before Election Day. The outcome of this election may help decide control of the Senate, influence President Barack Obama's final two years in office and determine the political fate of Kentucky's longest-serving senator.

Booker shrugs off Twitter exchange with exotic dancer


Newark Mayor Cory Booker is known for engaging in casual banter on Twitter with people from all walks of life, and one of those private exchanges with an exotic dancer was made public Wednesday.

And a Booker spokesman said the mayor doesn't regret it.

"It is obviously pretty innocuous and quite frankly there is nothing there," Booker spokesman Kevin Griffis said about the mayor's interaction with the stripper, Lynsie Lee.
