FROM A NEWS RELEASE SENT BY THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Grove Insight poll that shows Representative Mike McIntyre leading Republican challenger Ilario Pantano by 11 percent.
In the initial head-to-head in the race for North Carolina’s 7th congressional district, McIntyre leads Pantano 52 percent to 41 percent. Conducted October 3-5, the poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a 4.9 percent margin of error.
“Voters in Southeastern North Carolina want someone they can trust to stand up for them and, every day that goes by, they’re learning Ilario Pantano’s dangerous agenda doesn’t reflect their values,” said Jesse Ferguson, Southern Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “From raising taxes to privatizing Social Security, Pantano’s agenda is out of touch and, what’s worse, a bipartisan consensus is growing that he can’t be trusted to tell the truth about his past. Every time voters learn something about Ilario Pantano, they’re left with more questions than answers.”
