Today, Club for Growth Action released a poll that shows Greg Steube with a 39% to 16% lead over Julio Gonzalez among Republican primary voters in Florida’s 17th Congressional District. Additionally, while Steube’s favorables continue to rise, Gonzalez’s unfavorables continue to grow.
Specifically, the polling revealed:
- Name ID and Image:
o Greg Stuebe’s favorables have increased by nearly 20 points from our survey a month ago, and Steube has a strong image with favorables more than twice his unfavorables.
o On the other hand, Julio Gonzalez’s image has gotten significantly worse with a 25-point increase in his unfavorables and only minimal improvement in his favorables. Gonzalez’s image is now upside-down with unfavorables more than half-again as large as his favorables.
o Steube’s ballot share continues to grow, and he’s now at nearly 40% while Gonzalez is stuck in the mid-teens.
- Steube has nearly two-and-a-half times the vote that Gonzalez has, a commanding lead with only a few weeks left before the primary.
o Both leading indicators for election outcome look good for Steube.
- Steube leads by 27 points among voters who have heard of both Steube and Gonzalez and receives a majority of the vote among those with opinions of both.
The survey was conducted for Club for Growth Action by WPA Intelligence. WPAi conducted 300 live telephone interviews (30% cell phone) on August 8-9, 2018, and the margin of error is ±5.7%.

Today, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh provided the following statement in response to congressional candidate Kevin Hern’s ad attacking Club for Growth Action:
“It’s ironic that Kevin Hern is attacking Club for Growth Action for its support of Ted Cruz during the Republican presidential primary when Hern himself hired the very consulting firm that spent millions upon millions attacking Donald Trump,” stated Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh.
“This just goes to show the lengths Kevin Hern will go to as he tries to conceal the fact that he personally donated to the Democratic Senator who cast the deciding vote to pass Obamacare. And the cherry on top of this all is that Hern begged for the Club for Growth PAC’s endorsement. The bottom line is Kevin Hern can’t be trusted. He’ll say anything and worse, do anything to get elected. Oklahoma deserves better than Hern the Hypocrite.”

Today, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh provided the following statement regarding what William Timmons, candidate for South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District, has stated about President Trump:
“Mr. Timmons confirms he said that nasty thing about Trump, but he whines that he said other things, too,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “So, like a typical politician, Mr. Timmons’ wants to get away with speaking out of both sides of his mouth. Sorry, Mr. Timmons, you said you had QUOTE major issues with many things Trump does, UNQUOTE. If you want to explain that away, fine. But don’t try to censor the debate and hide the truth from the voters.” Here is a screenshot of William Timmons’ statement:

It is important for Montanans to have all the facts when it comes time to vote, and that’s why Club for Growth Action is investing additional resources to ensure that every corner of the state knows that Russ Fagg is tough on victims and light on crime.”

When Russ Fagg claims he protected Montana families, he’s not telling the whole truth.
After Matthew Green assaulted a child, choked his wife, and came at her with a knife, he faced 50 years in prison.
Fagg put him away for just five years.
The mom testified, “My children watched him beat me up for 45 minutes.”
Still Fagg cut 45 years off the maximum sentence.
Russ Fagg. He’s tough on victims.
