Edwards losing to Flores

Stu Rothenberg catches the Chet Edwards campaign fibbing:

Rep. Chet Edwards, for example, hasn't answered GOP polling showing he trails challenger Bill Flores (R) badly. While the Texas Democrat told me earlier this cycle that he never releases his polling, his campaign did release a Bennett, Petts & Blumenthal survey done Oct. 9-10, 2006, that showed him far ahead of then-challenger Van Taylor (R).
That poll showed a significantly wider lead than what happened on election day.

Plenty of campaign staffs do this, but it underscores that Edwards is probably losing right now by more than a few points. Can he turn it around?
