A new Minneapolis Star Tribune/Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategies poll (9/10-12; 800 MN likely voters) finds state Sen. Karin Housley (R-St. Croix Valley) pulling to within high single-digits of appointed Sen. Tina Smith (D) in the upcoming special Senate election scheduled concurrently with the regular election calendar. According to the Mason-Dixon results, Sen. Smith’s lead is narrowing to 44-37%, placing Housley within shouting distance of the incumbent with Sen. Smith well below 50%. This special election effort may become one to watch as Election Day draws ever nearer.
