During a news conference, Boyda, of Topeka, said her underdog campaign remains a dead heat.
She released her campaign poll, which she said shows Ryun at 42.6 percent and Boyda at 40 percent with the rest undecided. Last month, she released polling that had her with a slight edge. …
[A Ryun spokesman] said he doubted her poll results and said their release was a ploy to keep people contributing to her campaign.
Black said the Ryun campaign would not release its poll results.
If Ryun were polling outside the margin of error, he’d release his internal polling, and put this to bed. But instead, he claims the results are invalid, but doesn’t offer any reason to question it.
One poll showing the race within the margin of error could be a fluke. Two polls showing the race tied can’t be dismissed so easily. Boyda has gone from a 16% loss two years ago to a tied race. That’s impressive, and it deserves your support. If we can win that district, we can win anywhere.
