Gowdy Leads, Lee Close Behind in Fountain Inn Straw Poll
Last night, the Fountain Inn Chamber of Commerce and Fountain Inn Rotary Club hosted a fourth congressional debate with Myra Ruiz from WYFF moderating. The results of the straw poll held after the debate are as follows (sections is in order of percent vote).
Trey gathered 31% of the vote after the debate. This is not all surprising as he has been working hard and building a lot of name recognition. Of all the candidates, he has not been shy when it comes to attacking Inglis. Given his fund raising totals and the perceived street cred obtained by those numbers, he may be in the final two.
As the title says, Lee came in second with 27%. This looks good for Jim and shows that his ground game and solid performance last week in the WORD radio debate is cashing in. If Jim can continue to build this momentum, watch out.
I have been hearing rumors that Thomas’ Senate seat may be on the line if he performs poorly in his own district. Unfortunately, for Thomas, polling in 3rd with 20% in his backyard could be the beginning of the end for him in politics.
Jeffrey brought in 15% after the Boiling Springs Tea Party issued a “Red Alert” call to action yesterday. She is polling a little better than I expected. We are waiting to see if the other Tea Parties will get behind her, but our sources say that is not likely.
Bob, Bob, Bob. What else can we say than he brought in 7% of the vote. Oh yeah, did we mention the democrats are likely not to vote in this election since they have multiple candidates in the governors race they covet so dearly?
