Robert Owens, who has been endorsed by the Libertarian, Constitution, and Reform parties of Ohio, is running as an Independent candidate for Ohio Attorney General in Ohio. A poll was done recently by SurveyUSA which put Mr. Owens at 13%. This has stirred up some press in Ohio.
CLEVELAND — The race to replace Marc Dann as Ohio Attorney General includes an independent candidate who is attracting some voters.
An exclusive poll conducted by SurveyUSA and WKYC-TV shows independent candidate Robert Owens with 13% of the vote. The poll of 692 likely Ohio voters was conducted from September 12-14.
Leading the race with 44% is Democrat candidate Richard Cordray, currently Ohio’s Treasurer. Republican candidate Mike Crites has 33% of the vote. Crites is a former US Attorney who prosecuted Pete Rose.
The SurveyUSA Channel 3 News poll showed another 10% of likely Ohio voters still undecided, making a projected winner impossible at this time.
My sources, who are not connected to the campaign, have told me that Robert Owens has raised over $100,000 and has a strong grassroots base. Owens is currently on a fundraising push, his website can be found here.
