California Democrat Kamala Harris has a wide lead over other potential Democratic candidates in a primary to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer, according to the results of an internal poll obtained by POLITICO.
The survey, conducted for the Harris camp by Democratic robopolling firm Public Policy Polling, shows the state attorney general leading former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa 41-16 in a head-to-head match-up. Forty-three percent were undecided.
Harris remained ahead even when other Democrats and Republicans were added to the mix.
Thirty-four percent of those surveyed said they would vote for Harris.
