Poll: WI-01 Democrat Primary Tied Between Two Terrible Candidates

WI Democrats face choice between a deadbeat dad who has been arrested nine times and a candidate who calls ICE officers “thugs”

WASHINGTON – On the heels of the first Democratic primary debate in WI-01, Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) released polling showing a tie in Wisconsin’s First District Democratic primary. The choice is between Randy Bryce, a deadbeat dad who has been arrested nine times, and Cathy Myers, a candidate who not only wants to dismantle U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but calls ICE officers “thugs.”

“Just like Democratic primary voters, CLF is having a tough time deciding which candidate will be more fun to defeat in November,” said Corry Bliss, CLF Executive Director. “Wisconsin Democrats have a difficult choice between a deadbeat dad who has been arrested nine times, or a candidate who not only wants to dismantle ICE, but calls ICE officers ‘thugs.’ We’re looking forward to defeating whoever comes out of the primary.”

The poll surveyed likely Democratic primary voters and was conducted July 8 – 9, 2018. See full poll results and methodology below:
