Tedisco takes lead

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Republican Jim Tedisco now appears to lead Democrat Scott Murphy by 12 votes after picking up 37 more votes in re-canvassing, reports PolitickerNY, citing county election officials.

The score Tedisco: 77,236, Murphy: 77,224.

But, again, none of this likely really matters to the ultimate outcome of the race -- with those some 6,000 absentee ballots still yet to be counted.
