Yesterday, New York held its special congressional election to fill the former House seat of now-Senator Kristen Gillibrand. After an intense final week of campaigning, the results are too close to call.
Quite a victory already for Council-endorsed Scott Murphy who, just six weeks ago, was a twenty-point underdog.
Out of 154,000 votes cast, today’s reports indicate Murphy leads Republican James Tedisco by 65 votes. As many as 10,000 absentee and provisional ballots remain to be counted, and we’ll be waiting on the final result for at least several weeks.
