Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas has a strong lead in a possible Republican primary for the Virginia 7th Congressional District race if he decides to run. Freitas has a double-digit lead over his closest competitor.

Freitas, a favorite of libertarian and liberty-oriented conservatives, is being strongly encouraged to run for the VA-07 seat, which was held by another favorite of the liberty-wing, Dave Brat until his defeat last year. Freitas also has strong name ID with 41% of respondents knowing who he is.

Here’s the poll results:

Nick Freitas: 23%
Bryce Reeves: 11%
John McGuire: 9%
Tina Ramirez: 4%
Peter Greenwald: 1%
Undecided: 52%

The poll was conducted by WPA Intelligence for the Club For Growth PAC. The poll contacted 400 likely voters and has a margin of error of 4.9%.

“Nick Freitas is well-positioned to win the Republican nomination in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District,” said Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh in a press release. “We plan to invest more resources in Nick’s candidacy than in any of our previous House races.”
