Tedisco Challenges Gillibrand's Ballot

The Albany Times-Union reports Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D-NY) absentee ballot in the NY-20 special election was challenged by Jim Tedisco (R). Gillibrand, of course, represented the district before being tapped to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate.

Politicker NY has more on how the Tedisco campaign is being very aggressive in challenging absentee ballots -- all but ensuring the election dispute will take weeks to resolve.

The unofficial tally moves back and forth, but tonight it gives Murphy a 47 vote lead. However, there are still no numbers from Tedisco's stronghold in Saratoga County and Murphy's stronghold in Washington County.

CQ Politics reports that five of the district's 10 counties still had not completed their counts as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.
