After challenges, loss of his Assembly Minority leadership & the humiliating fact that he was beaten by a neophyte candidate who'd only lived in the District for 3 years, Jim Tedisco bowed to the inevitable and conceded defeat.
Those of us who have followed this day after day and learned more than we probably wanted to know about absentee ballots. Now we can celebrate.
Bye Bye Jim Tedisco - can Michael Steele be far behind?
Thanks to posters who kept us up to date on all the twists and turns in this special election:
Queer But Dear, Arjun Jaikumar, DavidNYC, Davidsfr, jpmassar, Andrew C White, LeftistAddiction, ecostar, Seneca Doane, Hudson, Ken in Tex, devtob, StuHunter and other contributors I may have missed.
Sorry for the late post, but I spent all last night learning how to embed YouTube videos, had this diary all ready to go. When I got the word of Tedisco's concession I was at a site that blocked YouTube. (Sound of teeth gnashing.)
Have a good weekend, everyone!
