GOP internal shows Democratic Rep. Kosmas trailing

Another Republican internal poll shows a Democratic incumbent running behind a GOP challenger.

Republicans are touting numbers from Public Opinion Strategies that show state Rep. Sandy Adams (R) ahead of Rep. Suzanne Kosmas (D-Fla.) 49 percent to 37 percent. 

The Kosmas campaign dismissed the internal as a "partisan poll," in a statement to the St. Petersburg Times.  

Adams, who narrowly emerged from a crowded Republican primary field last month, does stand at a major financial disadvantage ahead of November with Kosmas sitting on $1.3 million cash on hand as of her last campaign filing.   

Nationally, the two campaign committees are in an internal polling war. The National Republican Congressional Committee has drawn attention to a slew of polls in recent weeks highlighting solid numbers for its candidates across the country. 

The IE arm of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fired back Tuesday unveiling positive internals for a handful of incumbents targeted by the GOP, including Reps. Tom Perriello (D-Va.) and Bobby Bright (D-Ala.).
