By October 6, 2016 News No Comments

Denise Juneau (17 of 31)After Montana Superintendent Denise Juneau broke another fundraising record last quarter, polls now show the Congressional race between her and Congressman Ryan Zinke is within the margin of error.

According to a recent poll by Harstad Strategic Research of 403 likely Montana voters, Denise has significantly closed the gap between herself and Congressman Zinke to just 3 points (42-45), well within the margin of error of 4.9%. The Libertarian candidate drew 3 percent of the vote, with 9 percent of voters still undecided in this race.

“This poll comes as no shock, because Denise is running a great campaign to put Montana first, and Montanans know it,” said Lauren Caldwell, Denise Juneau’s campaign manager. “Congressman Zinke has put all his energy into distorting Denise’s record, because he doesn’t have anything to show for his time in Washington, and voters are ready for a change.”

The Harstad poll shows clear momentum following an earlier GBA Strategies Poll that had Juneau down 8 points.

Juneau also raised more than $875,000 in the third fundraising quarter, which brings her to over $2 million raised since she announced her candidacy.  Her quarterly and overall totals are more than any other Democratic candidate has ever raised for a Montana U.S. House race.
