Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux was locked in a tight race with incumbent Republican Rob Woodall for Georgia's 7th Congressional District.

NBC News retracted its earlier call that said Bourdeaux had won, due to a data entry error.

Bourdeaux, a former aide to Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., appeared to be lagging behind Woodall in a late-October poll of the race from JMC analytics, which gave Woodall a lead of 6 percentage points.

That spread favoring Woodall, who was elected to Congress in 2011, echoed the 2016 presidential election results in the district, where then-candidate Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 6 points.
