Democrat Phil Bredesen is holding on to a slight lead in the Tennessee Senate race.  That’s according to the newest poll.

The NBC News / Marist survey found Phil Bredesen with a two point lead over United States Congressman Marsha Blackburn, the Republican nominee for Senate.

Bredesen – 48

Blackburn – 46

Bredesen’s lead is within the margin of error for the poll.

The same poll shows a much bigger lead for Republican Tennessee gubernatorial Candidate Bill Lee.

Fifty-three percent over Tennesseans surveyed said he’s their pick over Democratic nominee Karl Dean, the former Mayor of Nashville.

Lee – 53

Dean – 40

The deadline to register for the November election is October 9th.
