get an edge on their opponent. They have research teams, conduct detailed and 
pricey polls and dispatch trackers across the country to catch members of the 
other party in unscripted and damaging moments. 

BUT ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, THE NRCC walked across the street to the DCCC's 
headquarters on Capitol Hill to stake out some Dem candidates, and stumbled 
upon what they consider a quite fortuitous find. Dems say it represents tactics 
that are totally out of bounds, and downright creepy.

THE DCCC was holding a polling meeting with the blinds wide open, all their 
information on display for passersby to see. The meeting was billed as part of 
their Red to Blue program -- the GOP seats Democrats are trying to flip. The 
NRCC aides snapped photos, and you can see their photo document here. 

REPUBLICANS SAY THEY GLEANED a wealth of valuable intel on the state of key 
House contests. For example, the NRCC learned that Democrats' internal polling 
shows the special election in California's 25th District -- Katie Hill's former 
seat -- as just a 4-point race, with Republican former Rep. Steve Knight 
trailing Chrissy Smith 30-26. They also had slides that appeared to show the 
DCCC's favorites in contested Democratic primaries.

THE NRCC AND DCCC have disagreed on where to draw the line when it comes to 
opposition research. The Republican committee, for example, has declined to 
sign an agreement to not use hacked information in its campaigns.
