State Treasurer John Kennedy Holds Big Lead Over Large Field
From Stephanie Akin, Roll Call reporter
Louisiana state Treasurer John N. Kennedy, a self-described "political misfit," holds a large lead in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. David Vitter, according to a new poll, significantly outperforming two House members who gave up their seats to run.
Thirty-two percent of respondents to the survey conducted by Southern Media & Opinion Research in late May said they would vote for Kennedy, a Republican, if the election were held then, compared to 10.1 percent for Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., and 5.2 percent for Rep. John Fleming, who are also Republicans.
