GRAY RISES, OTHERS FADE IN GA-6
Johns Creek-based Technology Executive Bob Gray gains 3 points in poll conducted by Trafalgar Group
Johns Creek, Ga—With just twenty-one days until early voting begins, Bob Gray has pulled within striking distance of longtime political candidate, Karen Handel, in the Republican field. He’s now within 5 points of her and Democrat favorite, Jon Ossoff, who both enjoyed double digit leads merely two weeks ago. Distant third place Republican Judson Hill declined a point.
In response, Gray’s Campaign Manager, Tyler Jacobs, said, “You’re starting to see Republicans split into two camps, those that want a conservative outsider and those used to seeing Handel’s name on the ballot.”
The poll released by the Trafalgar Group not only showed a significant bump for Bob Gray overall, but according to the polling firm’s top strategist, they’re expecting a larger than average senior turnout that easily eclipses 40% on its way to possibly passing 50%. And according to their professional analysis, Handel and Gray are the only major candidates who improve their overall numbers as senior participation increases.
Bob Gray added, “I’m proud of the hard work my team has put forth so far and humbled by our progress. I like our trajectory and look forward to meeting even more folks throughout the district.”
As a business executive, Bob Gray has worked with dozens of Fortune 500 and private equity companies across a range of industries. His experience has taken him to nearly 30 countries including China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, and the UK. As an investor in technology businesses, Bob serves on the board of directors of Ammacore, an Alpharetta-based North American network solutions company. Bob also led the development of the Swift School in Roswell, the largest school in the Southeast devoted to teaching children with dyslexia.
