Poll shows tied field for 2014 Senate race | The Augusta Chronicle

The four announced Republican hopefuls for the U.S. Senate are essentially tied when considering the margin of error, and one exploratory candidate, political newcomer David Perdue, has 5 percent.

Congressmen Jack Kingston at 17 percent, Phil Gingrey at 15, and Paul Broun with 11 are splitting the vote so far with former Secretary of State Karen Handel, who has 13 percent. The remaining 39 percent are undecided or support another candidate.

Towery said the candidates are effectively on equal footing.

“The ones who get on TV the earliest, if they have an effective message, they will get a lead, and it’ll be hard of the others to catch up,” he said.
