Hultgren Widens Lead in the 14th District

A presser from Hultgren's office,

St. Charles – In poll results released today from We Ask America, State Senator Randy Hultgren is leading the incumbent, Bill Foster, in the race for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District 44% to 37%.

The August 4th poll sampled responses from 1,028 registered voters in the 14th Congressional District.

While we do not live and die by every poll that comes out, today’s We Ask America poll shows clear momentum for Randy’s campaign for Congress,” said John Cooney, Campaign Manager for Randy Hultgren.

Just two months ago, Randy led by a single percentage point, so this survey shows real movement as voters begin to focus on the candidates and their records.

Along with a seven point lead among registered voters, Randy enjoys a ten point advantage among independent voters who strongly reject the failed policies of the Foster/Pelosi Congress,” said Cooney. “Bill Foster voted for a stimulus package that failed to create jobs and a health care boondoggle that cuts $500 billion out of Medicare. Illinois voters are coming to realize that Randy Hultgren is the right choice for our families and our future.

In a battle between volunteers making calls and a guy sending mailers with the Congress's frank, the volunteers are winning.
