New poll from Ansari campaign shows Yassamin Ansari at 32%, opponents at 21% and 8%.

PHOENIX, AZ – In the last 92 days of the Democratic primary election in Arizona’s Third Congressional District, former Phoenix Vice Mayor holds an 11-point lead against her main opponents in this race. 

In the poll, conducted by phone April 17-21 of 425 likely Democratic primary voters, Yassamin Ansari holds a 32% – 21% lead over Raquel Terán, with 8% for Duane Wooten and 34% undecided. The poll was conducted by Lake Research Partners.

Campaign Manager Pasquale Luz issued the following statement:

“As we’ve seen over the last 13 months and as demonstrated in the newest polling, voters from Arizona’s Third Congressional District want the former Vice Mayor Ansari to continue delivering for them in Congress. Her record of results on protecting abortion rights and standing up against extremism at the United Nations and the Phoenix City Council makes clear she will be a strong advocate for our community in Congress.” 

After finishing with more than twice as much cash on hand as the next competitor ($902,409 to $447,986) for the second quarter in a row, the Ansari campaign continues to outpace the competition, having garnered the majority of union support in this race.

As the youngest woman ever elected to the Phoenix City Council, representing one of the most diverse districts in the fifth-largest and fastest growing city in the country, Yassamin Ansari led efforts to raise wages for thousands of workers, passed the city’s first ever Climate Action Plan, and took charge on the City Council to pass an ordinance that instructed the Phoenix Police Department to deprioritize the enforcement of unjust abortion laws. If elected, Yassamin  Ansari would be the youngest woman and the first Iranian-American in Congress.
