BOSTON (CBS) – A new poll shows a close race between U.S. Senator Scott Brown and Harvard law professor Elizabeth Warren. But Brown says he is not worried.

The UMass Lowell-Boston Herald poll has Brown leading Warren 41-to-38 percent. It’s considered a dead heat because the difference is within the poll’s margin of error of 3.8 percent.

Brown told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Monday he has more important things to focus on right now.

“I’m going to have an opponent in November and I’m going to continue to do my job and work on the very important things people care about and that’s jobs, job creation and, it’s what, 13 months away? I’m not worried about polls, never have been.”

U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas endorsed Warren Monday.

City Year co-founder Alan Khazei, state Rep. Tom Conroy, immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco, Newton resident Herb Robinson; and Robert Massie are also running.

The Democrats will hold their first debate in the race Tuesday.
