Republican governor primary is tight
A new survey on Tennessee's Republican gubernatorial primary says the four-way Aug. 2 race remains close with U.S. Rep. Diane Black leading Knoxville entrepreneur Randy Boyd by about a single percentage point. The survey found Black's support at 24 percent while 23 percent of those surveyed said they supported Boyd. Franklin businessman Bill Lee's backing was at 19 percent while ten percent favor state House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville. But nearly one in five Republicans said they had yet to make up their minds.. During the polling period, Black's campaign began going up on television with ad attacks on Boyd and Lee. Boyd's campaign responded and launched a counter attack. Lee and Harwell continue to air positive ads touting their candidacies and no negative ads. Another recent poll showed Boyd leading Black by six percentage points, 33 percent to 27 percent. Lee had 20 percent support while Harwell was at 7 percent. Early voting in state and federal primaries as well as county general election contests starts July 13.
