POLL SHOWS STEVE RUSSELL HAS COMMANDING LEAD IN 5th DISTRICT RUNOFF
Lt. Col. Steve Russell, GOP Candidate for Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District, shows a 10-point lead in a new poll released today. The poll was conducted by the JMC Enterprises on July 8th and sampled 419 voters in the 5th District.
The results are:
Lt. Col. Steve Russell: 41%
Patrice Douglas: 31%
Margin of Error: +/-4.8%
“I am happy to see the voters of the 5th District responding to our positive campaign,” Steve Russell says. “This momentum is because the people believe that our country is still worth fighting for. I’m optimistic about our future and I think the voters join me in that feeling.”
Steve Russell won the June 24th GOP Primary with 26.6% of the vote in a six-person race. It appears he will maintain that lead into the runoff election on August 26th.
“We’ve had a great time meeting and speaking with voters almost every day,” says Russell. “I appreciate the groundswell of support from each and every one of them. Oklahomans want leaders to represent them in Washington who know how to get things done. I will not let them down.”
