PHOENIX 6/24/2016 – A poll conducted last week by Lincoln Strategy Group shows Sheriff Paul Babeu with a significant lead in the Republican primary race for the first congressional district in Arizona. This race is expected to garner national attention and is seen by many political observers as one of the best opportunities in the country for the GOP to win a seat currently occupied by a Democrat.
According to Nathan Sproul, Managing Director of Lincoln Strategy Group, “Sheriff Babeu starts this race with a significant lead. However, most voters are undecided, and even though the primary election is just a few months away, the candidates haven’t started spending money in a meaningful way yet. This race has the potential to get much closer before it’s over. It’s really a question of whether a candidate can emerge from the pack and challenge Sheriff Babeu directly.”
The poll was conducted on June 14, with a margin of error of 2.58. 1,427 people were surveyed.
