Paton up 5 points as candidates face-off in Marana for last debate
As Jonathan Paton and Ann Kirkpatrick prepare to square off in their last debate of the campaign tonight in Marana, a new poll shows Paton pulling away from Kirkpatrick with early voting beginning in just days.
The poll, conducted by the National Republican Congressional Committee on October 4, has Paton up 50% to 45% for Kirkpatrick with 5% undecided. The poll had 501 respondents with a margin of error +/-4.3%.
“It’s no wonder Ann Kirkpatrick and her special interest allies in Washington are leveling so many outrageous and false attacks against me: they’re losing,” said Jonathan Paton.
Paton added: “We’re winning because the people of this district believe that my plan for creating jobs and repealing Obamacare is the better one compared to Ann Kirkpatrick’s votes for trillion dollar deficits, funding our budget by borrowing from China, doling out taxpayer dollars to campaign staff, and redistributing money from Medicare to pay for Obamacare.”
