HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Republicans are hosting an online presidential straw poll as a party fundraiser.

State Republican Chairman Jerry Labriola Jr. says the recent Iowa caucus proved that the race for the Republican nomination is very close. He says he thinks winning the Connecticut Republican straw poll “will offer the winning candidate the momentum necessary to lock up the Northeast delegates.”

Ballots for the fundraising straw poll cost $20 each, and voting will continue until 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 20.

People can visit ctgop.org to vote.

The winner will be announced Jan. 20 at Nuchie’s Restaurant in Bristol, where there will be presentations from the GOP candidates’ campaigns.

Connecticut’s official presidential primary is scheduled for April 24.
