Back in New York’s 20th congressional district, David Freddoso reports that the absentee ballots already in and waiting to be counted lean Republican. That’s the (relative) good news for Republican Jim Tedisco. But the fact that this even has to come down to the wire is not a very good sign and offers a reality check as to how little anti-Obama anger exists at this moment in competitive districts. I fully expect Republicans to win back many conservative and Republican-leaning seats currently held by Democrats in the next election. But we don’t have any evidence yet that 2010 is going to look anything like 1994.
UPDATE: Here’s an unconfirmed report that Scott Murphy’s lead has dwindled to just 25 votes.
