Rep. Steve King Most Popular Among Iowa Republicans
The good folks at the Citizens United Victory Fund commissioned a poll of likely Iowa Republican primary voters.
The Wenzel Strategies survey of likely Republican Primary Election voters statewide in Iowa shows that Rep. Steve King is well-regarded by GOP primary voters and leads a field of many candidates by a wide margin. In a prospective 8-person contest for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate, King wins 34% support, compared to 19% for Rep. Tom Latham, who comes in second place. Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds comes in a distant third place, winning 10% support. Another 20% of respondents were undecided in the race.
The Citizens United PAC has supported both congressmen in past cycles; the group spent $2.8 million last cycle.
Of course, I’d really like to see how these candidates look in a general election — both in terms of name ID and favorability, not to mention how they match up with the potential Democratic Senate options…
