Scott Murphy Won In NY-20

Hey look, another Democrat won an election over a rightroots candidate.

The three week battle between Republican Jim Tedisco and Democrat Scott Murphy over a New York congressional district is heading to court today.

With all but the contested ballots counted, Murphy holds a 273-vote lead over Tedisco for the Albany-area U.S. House seat formerly held by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

There are more than 1,500 disputed ballots—the majority of which challenged by the Tedisco campaign—further signaling an advantage for a Democratic victory.
