Jim Tedisco picked up a little ground in the prolonged NY-20 ballot count, and Scott Murphy's lead now stands at 86
after Tedisco received a smaller-than-expected lead
in Saratoga County ballots. But Judge James Brands upheld a Democratic motion
that 1,200 ballots were improperly challenged. While further challenges will probably set many of them aside again, this is seen as a setback for Tedisco
. Local papers are getting annoyed
by the drawn-out process, but that no longer means much in American politics. Expect more court action on Monday.
