American Viewpoint congratulates the winners from Tuesday night who American Viewpoint had a role in helping. 

Thad Cochran (MS-SEN):  Thad Cochran proved pundits wrong and won a difficult reelection battle, effectively increasing turnout among his supporters.  American Viewpoint provided polling to the NRSC to aid in their efforts. James

Lankford (OK-SEN):  James Lankford received a massive 57% of the vote in a crowded primary, defeating a well-funded opponent (Former OK Speaker T.W. Shannon) by over 20-points and avoiding a runoff.  American Viewpoint conducted polling on behalf of the Super PAC supporting Lankford. 

Elise Stefanik (NY CD-21):  Facing a two time nominee in the primary, Elise Stefanik began as an underdog but ultimately won by a massive 22-point margin in what will be a key battleground district in the fall.  American Viewpoint conducted polling on behalf of the Stefanik campaign. 

Steve Russell (OK CD-5):  Even after being significantly outspent by his opponents, Steve Russell advanced to the August runoff and won a plurality of the votes in the open seat primary to replace James Lankford.  American Viewpoint provided strategic guidance to the campaign throughout the primary. In addition, just a few weeks ago American Viewpoint client

John Ratcliffe (TX CD-4) defeated long-time incumbent Ralph Hall.   Earlier this year, American Viewpoint was recognized with the Republican Pollster of the Year Pollie Award by the American Association of Political Consultants.
