A new Minneapolis Star Tribune/Minnesota Public Radio poll (10/15-17; 800 MN likely voters) finds state Sen. Karin Housley (R-St. Croix River Valley) closing the gap against appointed Senator Tina Smith (D). This survey finds the new Senator’s lead to be only 47-41%. To put the margin in perspective, the Star Tribune/MPR study also tested Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D), who is also on the ballot. In her race, Sen. Klobuchar holds a commanding 56-33% advantage over state Rep. Jim Newberger (R-Becker). The Smith-Housley race continues to be one to watch.
