Poll: Garvey’s Republican US Senate Campaign Climbing

FRESNO, CA (KMJ) Steve Garvey continues to climb in the polls. The former LA Dodger and San Diego Padre great has garnered 18% of voter support, according to a new Emerson College Polling-Inside California Politics poll released Thursday.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) remains the front-runner to replace the late Senator Diane Feinstein with 25%.

McClatchy Corp. newspapers editorial board endorsed Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) this week, despite her weak showing.

“Everywhere we go, the excitement for Steve Garvey is palpable,” Garvey campaign spokesman Matt Shupe said in a statement. “As Californians reconnect with Steve Garvey and embrace his message of compassionate, commonsense solutions for the everyday issues they face, coupled with his commitment to building political consensus, we anticipate seeing even more support for his campaign. The dynamics of this election are clearly evolving into a race to beat Steve Garvey.”
