Democrat Murphy Takes the Lead in NY-20
Businessman Scott Murphy (D) has taken the lead over Assembly
minority leader Jim Tedisco (R) in Tuesday's special election for
Kirsten Gillibrand's vacant seat in NY-20
according to a new poll
from Siena College.
The Libertarian candidate, Eric Sundwall, who was kicked off the ballot
by Republican operatives who challenged his petition signatures, got his
revenge by endorsing Murphy.
Although President Obama hasn't appeared in the district to campaign
for Murphy, he has made radio ads for Murphy.
Murphy has also sent out out flyers
with photos of Obama.
A Democratic win in this Republican
district will be demoralizing to the GOP as the Democrats will trumpet
it as support for Obama's presidency so far. Of course, a Republican
win will be spun by the Republicans as a rejection of Obama's policies.
Either way, Tuesday's results will be read as if they were goat entrails
in the old days.
Carnahan Leads in Missouri Senate Race

on the 2010 Senate race in Missouri shows Democrat Robin Carnahan
leading both of her potent (by 3%)ial Republican challengers, Roy Blunt (by 3%) and
