As a political outsider and first time candidate, Hayslett has skyrocketed to frontrunner status in the FL-13 Republican primary, raising close to $1.2 million in under six months and compiling more cash-on-hand than any of his opponents. The poll shows that there is a clear appetite for an outsider candidate who has what it takes to flip FL-13 red come November. 

“Hayslett’s tough-on-crime record and his overwhelming support from law enforcement has proven to voters that he is the only Trump Tough Republican ready to take on Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi,” stated his consultant, Sam Oh. “This type of movement and shift to a first time candidate is unprecedented, and it’s clear – Kevin Hayslett’s message is resonating with voters and he has what it takes to win this seat.”
