Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) is closing in on ex-Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate runoff scheduled for September 26, according to a new poll from JMC Analytics. Strange has made up serious ground in four weeks, narrowing Moore’s lead from +19 points to +8 points.

The poll still has Moore leading, 47-39 with 13 percent of those surveyed “undecided.” But that’s a big difference from Moore’s 51-32 lead from the same firm in August.

It’s been a busy week in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama, where voters go to the polls in a little over a week. Failed candidate Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who was dogged by his criticism of Donald Trump throughout the summer primary, endorsed Moore over the weekend.

The runoff is on Tuesday, September 26.
