A poll by Harkey’s campaign that was obtained by the Roll Call political website showed her with 46 percent to Levin’s 43 percent. The poll was conducted July 15-17.

However, an earlier poll by Levin’s campaign, conducted June 24-27, showed him with 44 percent to Harkey’s 41 percent.

Levin, an environmental attorney, led a crowded field of Democrats in the June primary, while Harkey, a member of the State Board of Equalization, was the top Republican vote-getter.

Issa, who narrowly won re-election in 2016, decided to retire rather than fight another campaign. He endorsed Harkey as his successor.

The district encompasses north coastal San Diego and south Orange counties.
