FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
B.J. Lawson Polling Ahead of Rep. David Price
Likely voters choose Lawson over Price 46.5 percent to 46.1 percent
RALEIGH, N.C., September 7, 2010 – William (B.J.) Lawson, MD, Republican challenger to Rep. David Price in North Carolina’s Fourth District, announces a turning point in his campaign as a recent poll shows that 46.5 percent of likely voters would elect him, as opposed to 46.1 percent who would vote to re-elect 22-year incumbent Rep. Price.
“This proves that voters know that Washington insiders aren’t serving their best interests, especially not one who votes with Nancy Pelosi more than any other congressman,” said Dr. Lawson. “Nearly half of these respondents are Democratic voters, so regardless of political affiliation, Americans know you can’t spend yourself out of a recession just like you can’t drink yourself sober. Americans know that you need to cut taxes and wasteful government spending, stop the bailouts, and let North Carolina keep more of our money to allow us to create jobs and prosperity in our own communities. Americans are hurting and responsibly tightening their belts and their spending, so it’s time for the government to have enough respect for us to do the same.”
This poll was conducted in mid-August by Action Solutions, which carries out its polls via a state-of-the-art automated telephone system using standard statistical methods to select a representative sample of registered voters. Action Solutions polled 1,038 registered likely voters here in the Fourth District – respondents included 45.4 percent Democrat, 28.2 percent Republican, 23.6 percent Unaffiliated and 2.8 percent other/third party – which accurately reflects the expected off-year turnout in the district.
Other data from respondents included:
• 95 percent were “very likely” to vote in the November midterm elections
• 71 percent believe that Congress is doing a poor job here in the Fourth District
• 52 percent do not think government spending helps the economy
These poll results also come on the heels of an influx of endorsements from key conservative congressmen including Virginia Foxx (NC-05), Walter Jones (NC-03) and Tom McClintock (CA-04), as well as former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory. Lawson has also been endorsed by key North Carolina state legislators including House Minority Leader Paul “Skip” Stam, Reps. Marilyn Avila and Nelson Dollar, and State Senator Richard Stevens.
A resident of Apex where he lives with his wife and three children, Dr. William (B.J.) Lawson is a Constitutional Conservative running for Congress in North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District. For more information, see the campaign’s Web site, http://www.lawsonforcongress.com.
Conservatives are aware and angry. We must show up at the polls and formally register our discontent. The spending and the loss pf personal liberty will never end unless we vote and work hard to elect those who pledge to reduce the size and scope of the federal government.
