A new poll puts Republican Marsha Blackburn narrowly ahead of Democrat Phil Bredesen in their U.S. Senate race. 

Among almost 750 voters polled by NBC News, 49 percent said they support Blackburn and 46 percent said they supported Bredesen. A poll conducted in August had Bredesen in the lead.

The same poll also has Republican Bill Lee leading Democrat Karl Dean 56 percent to 39 percent in the governor's race.
