Republican Ed Gillespie has an early lead among his party's candidates for Governor next year, but trails Democratic Lt. Governor Ralph Northam in a Quinnipiac University poll released today (12/14). The former Republican National Chairman has a solid lead at this point.
Peter Brown, Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, says over half the Republicans polled are undecided. The poll shows Northam with 38 and Gillespie with 34.
Brown says it's just a baseline poll, but a preview of what’s to come in 2017.
