“It’s remarkable for a candidate in an open seat to start out with such high name recognition and such a big lead, especially this early,” said John Shallman, chief strategist for Lou Correa’s campaign. “This result shows that voters have taken note of Lou’s tremendous record of accomplishment throughout his career for the communities of the 46th district.”
