Secretary of State’s Poll Shows Tight Race for Second Run-off Spot
A new poll for the Secretary of State’s special election in November is out, with Democrat Renee Fontenot Free (22%)in the lead, followed by Republicans Julie Stokes and Rick Edmonds (11%). Edmonds commissioned the JMC Analytics poll.
Pollster John Couvillon says a Democrat leading a red state isn’t surprising, considering there are five republicans running.
"Gwen" Collins-Greenup received 4% in the poll. Republican interim Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is at 3%. Couvillon says Ardoin’s late entry into the race has him chasing the pack.
