NEW POLL SHOWS PAULA DOCKERY CAN
DRAFT DOCKERY FOR GOVERNOR EFFORT
A poll just released by Atlanta-based Strategic Vision shows strong support for State Senator Paula Dockery to run for Governor.
In a head-to-head match up with Bill McCollum, Dockery garners 28% of the vote to McCollum’s 44%. McCollum has run statewide three times and lost two of those contests. Dockery has never run statewide.
“This is very exciting news that shows Senator Dockery can win the nomination and the general election,” stated Draft Dockery co-chairman Doug Guetzloe, Chairman of Ax the Tax, an Orlando-based grassroots political committee. “This poll shows what many of us in the GOP already know – Bill McCollum can’t win – Paula Dockery can.”
The independent survey shows McCollum topping out at 44% with very large unfavorable ratings.
“Senator Dockery hasn’t even agreed to run and she’s generating a tremendous amount of excitement among GOP activists,” stated Nick Egoroff, an Orange County Republican Executive Committee leader. “Paula’s victory over the CSX bailout was a huge victory for Florida taxpayers and it galvanized statewide grassroots support for Paula,” Egoroff concluded.
The Draft Senator Paula Dockery movement has just launched a website http://www.DOCKERY2010.COM as well as a Facebook site that has collected nearly 500 enthusiastic activists from all over Florida in announcing their support for Dockery for Governor in just a few days.
