Observer: Huhne 'closing' in LibDem race

The Observer reports that grassroots methods have brought Huhne neck and neck with Clegg:

Until last week, Huhne, 53, the party's environment spokesman, was thought to be trailing well behind his younger rival, home affairs spokesman Nick Clegg. But several of the party's MPs privately believe the two are now running neck and neck, after Huhne concentrated on using the traditional election methods of local political networks and telephone canvassing to win more votes.

The Observer also says that the hustings are going well for Huhne:

..a series of grassroots meetings in British cities (have been) helping the underdog Chris Huhne gain ground to make it a tighter contest.
