The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

According to TrumpNationNews, The Beth Harwell Campaign recently conducted an internal poll which indicated that Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles has a significant lead in the race for Tennessee’s District 5 Congressional seat.

The article states that the race has become a proxy war for MAGA versus the Establishment. In this case Ogles, who has been an adamant supporter of President Trump, versus candidate Beth Harwell, who has been identified as the “heavy establishment favorite.”

The poll TrumpNationNews references that was reportedly conducted by 1892 polling shows that Andy Ogles is in the lead with 30% of votes, followed by Harwell at 24%, Kurt Winstead at 13%, ‘someone else’ at 9% and Jeff Beierlein at 3%.  

Those that are ‘Undecided” still comprise a large portion of the electorate at 21%, leaving a race tossup on election day.

400 likely voters were polled that were contacted via a combination of live callers and texting with a margin error of plus or minus 4.86 percent.

The race for Tennessee’s 5th congressional district has been a uniquely contentious one. Outside groups have spent millions of dollars attacking the top three candidates in the race. Most of the attention seems to be directed at the candidate leading in the polls, Andy Ogles. 

Among other attack ads, The Conservative Americans PAC and Tennessee Conservatives PAC have attacked Ogles for allegedly supporting a property tax increase and sales tax increase. 

This is despite the fact that Ogles openly stood against any proposed property tax increase since his first day in office and recently vetoed a proposed property tax increase just a few weeks ago. 

Furthermore, the people of Maury County are the ones that voted to pass a sales tax increase by way of referendum. The Mayor of Maury County doesn’t have the power to pass a sales tax increase. 

Despite the negative ads, the most recent polling data conducted internally by Beth Harwell’s campaign shows that Andy Ogles is up by 6 points.

    I notice the survey/poll states that, at the time it was conducted, there were weeks left in the campaign … so when was it done? What is the date? If it was taken weeks ago is it accurate now?

    I DON’T BELIEVE IT!!! Andy Ogles declared for this race a few days before filing deadline and his campaign was dormant from then until a few days before early voting began while Beth Harwell and former Democrat General Weathervane’s campaigns were going strong. It’s much more likely that Beth Harwell (ACU-86%) with her name recognition that comes with her twenty years in the legislature is the only one in position to defeat Weathervane and Andy’s only function is to take conservative votes away from Beth which will lead to Weathervane’s victory. VOTE HARWELL!

    Beth Harwell’s campaign did not knock on my door to explain the new district and why I was receiving an enormous amount of mail. Andy Ogle did have someone knock on my door who I was able to talk to one on one.
    I think Harwell could have lost touch with the average middle class voter in the new district. We have got to stand up for the conservative fiscal responsibility that our TN families have lived on since I moved here in 1986. We cannot assume that what has worked in the past will work with the next section of voters.
