Recap of the NY-20 race.
Scott Murphy (D) is ahead by 65 votes. Nobody’s calling this race just yet. There are somewhere between six and ten thousand absentee ballots that need to be counted. They’re not being counted tonight. They’re not being counted for another week. (Via AoSHQ) You see, we do, in fact, actually learn from our mistakes. The deadline for overseas absentee ballots is actually April 13th. All | Read More »
The NY-20 special election is tomorrow.
And it will be close. I’m thinking that it’s a squeaker for Tedisco, unless of course this particular ad: …clarifies matters for NY-20. Also: it’d be nice if Tedisco broke 120K online, huh? contribute: Crossposted to Moe Lane.

(H/T: Hot Air) That’s a serious question, because he signed his name to an article saying precisely that back in college. The quote goes: The military not only discriminates on the basis of sexual preference, but on the basis of sex and race.
