We won't have a winner tomorrow. Steele must be chewing on his fingernails.

The race in the 20th Congressional district between Republican Jim Tedisco and Democrat Scott Murphy is too close to call.With 100 percent precincts reporting, Murphy leads Tedisco by only 59 votes, 77,344 to 77,285.

With nearly 6,000 absentee ballots that will essentially decide the race as of Monday, the election will not be decided at least until April 13.

As of Monday, 5,907 absentee ballots were received by the state Board of Elections out of around 10,000 mailed, according to spokesman Bob Brehm. Absentee ballots must be postmarked by March 30 and received within seven days for regular absentee ballots or 13 days for military and overseas ballots.

This election should have been a slam dunk for the republicans, but when you're a party that is run by RushBo, "stuff happens." At least RushBo is moving out of NY...Or as he says: Drop Dead.
