Is Democrat Scott Murphy moving closer to winning the still very close 20th congressional district race in Upstate New York?
This morning, the state elections board, updated its numbers and now shows Murphy widening his lead to 167 votes (79,404 to 79,237) over Republican Jim Tedisco (as of 10:00 am ET).
Tedisco's biggest potential arrow was Saratoga County, which he won by almost 5,000 votes. But Saratoga is completely done counting absentees as well as those overseas and military ballots. All that's left are challenged ballots. As has been reported, Tedisco has challenged far more ballots than Murphy. Translation: Plainly, there are likely more Murphy ballots out there than Tedisco ones.
