… The race will only become more intense as the general election nears. Earlier this year, the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC dedicated to electing Republicans to Congress, reserved some $825,000 in airtime in Utah this fall, while the Democrats’ House Majority PAC has reserved $900,000 in commercial spots.
On Thursday, the Republicans’ Congressional Leadership Fund shared poll results — but not the poll itself — showing Owens leading McAdams, 43% to 34%. Trailing were Libertarian John Molnar, with 5%, and the United Utah Party’s Jonia Broderick, with less than half a percent, and 15% said they didn’t know.
The poll was conducted by The Moore Information Group, which counts Republicans in the West and other parts of the country among its clients, on July 8, 9 and 11 among 400 likely general voters in the district and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5%, according to information supplied by the super PAC.
“Ben McAdams continues to be among the most vulnerable Democrats in the entire country,” the Congressional Leadership Fund’s spokesman, Calvin Moore, said. “With poll numbers this bad, no amount of money will be enough to cover up how he’s abandoned Utah families and embraced the radical left’s socialist agenda.”
