The race in the 20th Congressional District in New York is too close to call. Which should be a wake up call to those Dittoheads that that think there is nothing wrong with GOP these days.
Here is what David Frum says:
Too close to call? NY-20 is one of the most conservative districts in the northeast. Maybe the most conservative. The Republican candidate, Jim Tedisco, had experience and name ID. The GOP organization strongly backed him in a race recognized as one of the most important in the country this season. And it’s too close to call? If we cannot win NY-20 easily, where can we win?
Now, the GOP probably can win somewhere, but it needs to be competative everywhere to be a real party. Frum goes on to note that there will be a lot of excuses given by the conservative talking heads, but at some point, there will need to be some real soul searching by leaders in the GOP. But of course, according to Rush Limbaugh, we don't need to do any soul-searching, right?Riiiiiiight. You just keep living in your dream world, Rush.
HHR Note: Republican Jim Tedisco now appears to lead Democrat Scott Murphy by 12 votes after picking up 37 more votes in re-canvassing, reports PolitickerNY, however it should not be this close.
