Republican candidate Mike Carey currently holds an 11-point lead over Democrat state Rep. Allison Russo in the race to fill former Ohio Rep. Steve Stiver’s seat in Congress. Rep. Stiver announced in May he was resigning from Congress after more than a decade.
The Hill reports:
Eleven percent of voters are still undecided two weeks before the vote, but among those, 59.3 percent say they are leaning toward Carey, with only 40.7 percent leaning toward Russo.
On the same day the poll was released, Carey was seen in a promotional video with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
“We need a fighter like Mike in Congress to stand up to the Democrats’ socialist agenda and get our country back on track,” McCarthy said.
“Listen, I’m honored to have your support. Let’s send a message on Nov. 2 that the people of the 15th District are ready to make sure Nancy Pelosi’s days as Speaker are numbered,” Carey said in the video.
