Lowden, Angle top in GOP Senate race
LAS VEGAS (AP) – A newspaper poll shows Republican U.S. Senate primary hopefuls Sue Lowden and Sharron Angle about even in voter support, trailed by Las Vegas businessman Danny Tarkanian.
The survey of 625 registered Nevada voters commissioned and reported Friday by the Las Vegas Review-Journal suggests any of the three would face a close race against Democratic Sen. Harry Reid in November.
Mason-Dixon Polling & Research of Washington, D.C., conducted the survey by telephone Monday through Wednesday. The results have a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
The poll has Lowden drawing 30 percent support, Angle drawing 29 percent, and Tarkanian drawing 23 percent. Eight percent say they’re undecided.
Early primary voting is continuing throughout the state. The primary election is June 8.
