NY 20-Even Tighter Than We Thought?

When we left things off last night Democrat Murphy led Republican Tedisco by 59 votes.

Well, it could be closer than that.

THE COLUMBIA COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTIONS IS NOW REPORTING SOME NEW NUMBERS THAT APPEAR TO PUT DEMOCRAT SCOTT MURPHY AHEAD OF REPUBLICAN JIM TEDISCO BY 25 VOTES OUT OF MORE THAN 154,000 CAST YESTERDAY.

...THESE NUMBERS ARE FROM RE-CHECKING THE MACHINES...NOT A RE-CANVASS. ELECTIONS OFFICIALS SAY THEY MAY CHANGE AGAIN AFTER THE RE-CANVASS.

Updated vote totals here.

Based on the party breakdown of the absentee ballots, it looks like Tedisco has a very good shot at winning this once they are counted next week.

BTW-Spare yourselves the ACORN nightmares. It's a suburban and rural district for the most part. The two biggest "urban areas" are Saratoga Springs (an upscale resort/college town) and Glens Falls (a down trodden mill town). This is simply not fertile grounds for them.

As for regular party shenanigans? Meh, the district doesn't include Albany County so the chances for foul play on a large scale simply aren't any greater than anywhere else.
