RBJ Snap Poll: Readers favor challengers over mayor

In her expected bid for re-election this fall, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren will face at least two well-known Democratic primary challengers—James Sheppard and Rachel Barnhart—who appear to have stronger support in the business community.

Warren has not announced her intention to run but is widely expected to do so. In this week’s RBJ Daily Report Snap Poll, she was favored by only 13 percent, compared with 59 percent for Sheppard and 28 percent for Barnhart.
