Company with ties to Rooney defends favorable poll

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Allegations of lies and desperation are heating up the race for Congress in Southwest Florida as two candidates question the validity of a recently released poll.

The Remington Research survey shows political outsider Francis Rooney leading the contest by a wide margin with 45 percent of support, with Chauncy Goss trailing by 16 points and Dan Bongino by 30.

Both candidates pointed out the Remington Research is a subsidiary of Axiom Strategies, which Rooney is paying to help him with his campaign.

The Remington Research pollster holds that no one influenced him or the poll results.
