It’s on: Tedisco vs. Murphy

Polls opened this morning in the NY-20 district for the so-called “referendum on Obama/Congressional Democrats” race between Republican Jim Tedisco, who has served for nearly 30 years in the state Legislature, and Democrat Scott Murphy, a newbie to the political scene. The special election is being held because the seat was previously held by Kirsten Gillibrand, who was chosen by Governor Paterson to replace Hillary Clinton in the US Senate.

Should be an interesting race to follow, so make sure to check in at the Political Wire as they are on top of the latest developments via Twitter updates coming in from poll watchers and supporters of both candidates.

Here are five things to watch for in today’s election.
