Cruz wins Sumter GOP straw poll

Source: Sumter Citizen | February 5, 2016 |

Texas senator Ted Cruz appears to have the support of a plurality of the most active local Republicans after winning the straw poll Thursday night at the final Sumter County GOP meeting before the South Carolina primary.

Cruz, whose campaign also sent surrogates to the meeting to speak on his behalf, received 33 percent of the vote among the partisan crowd, well ahead of Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, each of whom received 15 percent in the straw poll to finish tied for second. Florida senator Marco Rubio finished fourth in the poll, with 13 percent.
