Scott Rigell opens the general election campaign with a 6-point advantage over incumbent, Democratic Congressman Glenn Nye
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Scott Rigell, conservative Republican candidate for Congress, today released key findings from the first poll to focus on November’s general election in Virginia’s Second Congressional District. To view the full memorandum and the head to head results released by Public Opinion Strategies, please click here.
After reviewing the results of the poll, Campaign Manager Jason Miyares released the following statement:
“These results are consistent with what Scott Rigell is hearing throughout the district; voters are anxious to send a conservative leader from the real world to Washington. Unlike politicians in Washington, Scott Rigell has met a payroll, balanced a budget, and created jobs. It is rare that a challenger would have a lead over an incumbent so early in the race, but it demonstrates that Rigell’s message of bringing business sense and conservative leadership to Washington is resonating with families in Hampton Roads and on the Eastern Shore.”
