A Republican polling memo obtained by the Herald-Leader shows Agriculture Commissioner James Comer with a commanding early lead over former Louisville Metro Councilman Hal Heiner in the 2015 gubernatorial primary.

Neither man has announced a run for governor, both have indicated that they’re likely to do so.

The poll, conducted by Robert Blizzard at Public Opinion Strategies, found Comer leading Heiner 42 percent to 14 percent among 400 Republican primary voters on Feb. 26 and 27. The margin of error was plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

Blizzard and Public Opinion Strategies have conducted polls for a number of Kentucky Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, U.S. Rep. Andy Barr and state Senate Republican floor leader Damon Thayer.
