Republican Senatorial candidate Leora Levy is closing the gap on Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal just weeks before the midterms, according to a new Connecticut Examiner/Fabrizio and Lee & Associates poll.

Levy is just five points behind incumbent Sen. Blumenthal, with results showing 44% to 49% with a 2.8% margin of error, the poll reported.

Serving as the Republican National Committeewoman for the State of Connecticut since 2016, Levy intends to replace career politician Blumenthal’s “far-left policies” that undermine “freedom and security,” her website says.

“It took until mid-October, but finally a public survey reflects the reality of this race: Leora Levy is in a margin-of-error, neck-and-neck race with Dick Blumenthal, a career politician with a thirty-seven-year head start,” said Tim Saler, spokesperson for the Levy campaign, in a statement to the CT Examiner. “Dick Blumenthal is under 50 percent despite spending more than $5.3 million dollars on advertising since the middle of June.”

Blumenthal plans to continue fighting like he is “10 points” behind, said Blumenthal spokesperson Ty McEachern “Senator Blumenthal is working to be Connecticut’s choice for the Senate while his opponent is Donald Trump’s choice. As always, he’s focused on his job, delivering results for the people of Connecticut. He will continue to work like he’s 10 points behind.”
