Special NC-09: Ridenhour Campaign Touting Impressive Internal Polling Numbers

CHARLOTTE – As the 9th Congressional District Special election heads toward its May 14 primary date, it’s hard to place exactly where each of the bevy of Republican primary contenders place. One candidates’ internal polling, however, is sure to raise some eyebrows.

One of the only, and most recent, polls of that race placed State Senator Dan Bishop way ahead of the pack, eclipsing the 30 percent threshold to avoid a runoff, and put Marine combat veteran Matthew Ridenhour significantly behind. That poll, however was conducted by Left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP), which has a reputation of mixing things up for Republicans with their polls.

In stark contrast to those results, Ridenhour is touting an internal poll that puts his campaign above the 30 percent threshold.

If those numbers are close at all, it puts the Rand Paul-endorsed Republican in a great position to, at the very least, make the runoff. There are a few high quality Republican candidates in this race, in a district that could go either way when it comes to the general election. It will be interesting to see who makes the cut to try to prevent Nancy Pelosi getting another reliable Democrat vote in the U.S. House.
