It's Over Jimmy

The more ballots election officials count, the better things look for Scott Murphy and his growing lead over Jim Tedisco. Another 250 were counted today and now Murphy is ahead by 365 votes. It seems that with each passing day that ballots are added to the total, Tedisco is looking weaker and weaker.

From PolitickerNY:

ALBANY—Democrat Scott Murphy's lead over Assemblyman Jim Tedisco in their race to replace Kirsten Gillibrand in Congress has grown to 365 votes, the latest official tally shows.

According to the State Board of Elections, the overall tally now stands at 79,751 for Murphy; 79,586 for Tedisco. The new tally reflects updated numbers from Warren and Essex counties. Counting is still taking place in Saratoga and Washington counties.

And yet another prominent (or once prominent) upstate Republican politician has chimed in to say it's over for Jim Tedisco. Jimmy, you are losing all your friends and allies, it is time to call it quits before that political career gets too many nails in its' coffin.
