Candidate for U.S. Congress Brian Rose was the runaway winner in a recent straw poll conducted by “Mississippi for Donald Trump” for the upcoming Republican Primary Election in Mississippi’s 4th District.

The poll ended with Rose beating incumbent Steven Palazzo by a margin of 40%.  70% of those polled voted for Rose, while only 30% chose Palazzo. Over 400 participants took part in the poll.

Palazzo has faced criticism from voters for his non-conservative budget votes in Congress and funding of Obama era programs, like Planned Parenthood and DACA.

The winner of the June 5th Republican Primary will face the Democrat nominee in the November election.
