The results have Doug Applegate (D) ahead at 18% followed by Rocky Chavez (R) at 17%.
The rest of the pack includes Diane Harkey (R) at 10%, Mike Levin (D) at 8%, Kristin Gaspar (R) at 7%, Sara Jacobs (D) at 5%, Brian Maryott (R) at 2%, Joshua Schoonover (R) at 2%, Paul Kerr (D) at 1%, and Christina Prejean (D) at 1%.
Of the total number of respondents, 37% were Republican, 32% were Democrats, and 30% were independents.
