Dane Eagle won the Lee County Republican Executive Committee straw poll in a landslide victory. The final vote was 68% for Eagle to 32% for his competitor – a 2:1 margin.

“I am excited to have the support. My Republican brethren are clearly responsive to a positive, issue-based campaign,” Eagle said, “I am honored to lend my experience and conservative credentials to the cause.”

The straw ballot poll of Lee County races covered all campaigns in the county. The actual administration of the poll was conducted by the Lee County Supervisor of Elections using official tabulating machines and checking credentials so only Republican members of the committee could cast votes.
