MICHELLE LEE SCORES STRONG SHOWING IN NEW CONGRESSIONAL POLL- MEETS WITH MONDALE - CONTINUES EXTENSIVE TRAVEL SCHEDULE IN 8TH DISTRICT
New polling data released to several media outlets recently details the strength of the Michelle Lee for Congress campaign throughout the 8th Congressional District. In the poll of 400 likely primary election voters conducted in mid-May, Lee receives 16 percent of the vote, just a single percentage point behind Joe Radinovich, whose campaign commissioned the survey from Victoria Research & Consulting of Takoma Park, MD. The poll results have a margin of error of +/-4.9 percent.
In response to the poll’s release, Lee maintains her strong showing is based on her stance on issues that she’s discussed throughout the district with groups and individuals. “Our campaign has been a clear leader in advocating for families throughout the district,” said Lee. “People understand that I’ll not waver in my support for universal healthcare as a right for all, a clean, safe environment, access to free higher education, support for family farms in the face of devastating tariffs, and funding for rural infrastructure and development.”
In addition, Lee says she’ll oppose attempts by Republicans to limit support for low-income families who receive housing, fuel and food assistance. “I will not stand in silence while Republicans in Congress and those seeking office advocate for greater relief for millionaires while cutting away the safety net for those Americans living below the poverty line who are just one paycheck away from total chaos in their lives,” said Lee.
Earlier this week, Lee had a second opportunity to meet with former Vice President Walter Monday, this time in his Minneapolis office. “We had a wide-ranging discussion on the important issues facing Minnesota and our nation. I greatly value his advice and counsel, and his willingness to share more time with me as our campaign moves forward,” said Lee.
