A new poll showed Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase leading the state’s Republican primary for governor. The Christopher Newport University survey was released on Friday and showed that 17 percent of Republican voters supported Chase.

In the meantime, 10 percent backed former Virginia House Speaker Kirk Cox while tech businessman Pete Snyder gained six percent support. Chase is a staunch Trump supporter and has touted her fight for Second Amendment rights and re-opening the state. If she wins the GOP primary, Chase will face the winner of the crowded Democrat field.

So far, the poll showed former Governor Terry McAuliffe leading with 26 percent support from Democrat voters.
