The official results are in for the 3rd Congressional District Straw Poll that was conducted by the Cowlitz County Republicans from April 12th to April 23rd. Joe Kent is the runaway preferred candidate among straw poll voters, garnering 87% of the total vote! While straw poll results are in no way definitive of how the Primary Election will go, it is clearly evident that early Republican voters are motivated in favor of Joe Kent. There was excellent participation by Republicans both inside and outside Cowlitz County, with voters representing six of the seven counties within the 3rd Congressional District. Nearly 44 percent of those participating came from outside Cowlitz County, most all of which were Joe Kent supporters.
