Kelda Roys Wins 2nd Congressional District Democratic Straw Poll
"Today’s results show that Wisconsin Democrats are looking for hope, optimism, and someone to vote for, not just something to vote against."
Today, at the 2nd Congressional District Democratic Convention, Kelda Roys came in first place in the gubernatorial straw poll with a commanding 30%, despite the large field.
“Today’s results show that Wisconsin Democrats are looking for hope, optimism, and someone to vote for, not just something to vote against,” said Roys. “It’s clear that my message of restoring opportunity and fairness to our state is resonating with voters.
“As I travel across Wisconsin to share my plans for supporting families and empowering small businesses, voters in every part of the state are responding positively. People are ready to turn the page, and start expanding access to healthcare, investing in universal pre-k and paid family leave, and raising wages for Wisconsin workers.
“Wisconsinites are ready for our state to be a leader again. In every part of the state, our progressive values of opportunity and fairness are building momentum for our campaign that will carry our movement to victory in August and November.”
The results of the straw poll are as follows:
Roys was also in Tomahawk today, attending the 7th CD Democratic convention, but they did not have a straw poll. Earlier this month, she was among the top four finishers in the Racine County Dems straw poll; the party did not release numbers or rankings.
