Incumbent U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick’s lead over Republican Raul Labrador fell from 10 percentage points in mid-September to 3 percentage points late last week, says a poll commissioned by The Spokesman-Review and six other newspapers.

The freshman Democrat’s lead is so narrow that it may not exist at all because it falls within the poll’s 5-point margin of error.
