Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Democratic challenger Deborah Ross are tied in the latest poll of the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina from Quinnipiac University.

Heading into Nov. 8, the closely-followed U.S. Senate race is locked in a tossup on TPM’s Senate Scoreboard.

Burr and Ross are tied at 47 percent in the poll of likely North Carolina voters.

Ross, a former North Carolina representative, held a four-point lead in the state, 49-45, when Quinnipiac polled the race just last week.

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted via live telephone interview from Nov. 3-6 among 870 likely North Carolina voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the U.S. Senate race in North Carolina shows a tossup, with both Ross and Burr at 46.4.
