Debbie Halvorson Moved Ahead of Robin Kelly in Polls: 2nd District Race
Despite a slew of recent endorsements for Kelly and a major dropout, Halvorson moved ahead of the former state representative going into the weekend.
Poll results, released Friday, put Debbie Havorson at the top of the Democrats going into the 2nd District special primary election, according to the Daily-Journal.
The poll used 500 voters likely to cast a ballot in the Feb. 26 election, and showed the former congressman now leads with 21 percent of the vote. Robin Kelly is second in line with 17 percent.
Halvorson talked about the results in a prepared statement, implying that they are not all that surprising and that they only confirm "what other polls — outside the Robin Kelly campaign — have indicated."
Victory Research conducted the poll, from Feb. 17 through Feb. 19, for WCKG AM Radio.
The results of the Feb. 26 primary election will reveal which Democrat and which Republican will appear on the general election ballot.
