A new Selzer & Company survey for the Des Moines Register newspaper and Mediacom cable television provider (5/13-15; 501 IA likely voters) again tested the Iowa Democratic gubernatorial primary as the June 5th nomination vote quickly approaches.
Fred Hubbell, a retired businessman who has been spending heavily on media advertising, leads the Democratic pack of candidates with 31% followed by state Sen. Nate Boulton (D-Des Moines) with 20%, and nurses’ union leader Cathy Glasson posting 13 percent. Three other candidates record support numbers only in single digits. If no candidate exceeds 35% support in the June 5th vote, a state convention will be called to choose a nominee. The eventual winner faces Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) who stands for her first election. She ascended to the Governorship when incumbent Terry Branstad (R) became US Ambassador to China.
