Raleigh, NC - Senator David Rouzer, Republican candidate for Congress, released the following statement today:

“With more than $221,000 cash on hand, far exceeding that of my opponent, we are well positioned to make up significant ground and win this race. It is no surprise that my opponent would release a poll on the day that fundraising reports are due to distract from his campaign’s cash on hand.

"The poll numbers my opponent released are virtually the same as his September poll. We have not run any ads nor sent any voter mail. The real race will begin in March after filing is completed.”
