Democrat Kristen Carlson narrowly led Republican Ross Spano, well within the margin of error, in a poll of Florida’s open 15th District commissioned by her campaign.
Carlson led Spano 48 percent to 47 percent, with 5 percent of likely voters undecided.
Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research surveyed 400 likely voters from Sept. 4-8, with 45 percent of interviews conducted via cell phone. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
Carlson is a former prosecutor and general counsel to the Florida Department of Citrus. Spano is a state representative who was backed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in last month’s primary.
Spano ended the pre-primary reporting period with a financial advantage. He had $111,000 in the bank to Carlson’s $51,000.
