Despite Being Outspent 10:1, Second Poll Shows Congressman Blum Statistically Tied with Challenger Abby Finkenauer in First District Race

DUBUQUE—Today Roll Call reported the second internal poll from the campaign of Congressman Rod Blum showing Rep. Blum statistically tied with challenger Abby Finkenauer, 43 – 45%.  6% of voters currently undecided.

“With over $3.5 Million being spent against Rep. Blum, it is remarkable that this is a margin of error race and proves that the votes of Iowans cannot be bought by special interest groups outside of Iowa funding Ms. Finkenauer’s campaign. said Blum campaign spokeswoman Alexah Rogge.

The survey of 400 registered voters was conducted October 12th– October 13th on behalf of Rod Blum for Congress and the NRCC by the polling co, inc, and has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%
