NY-20 count shifts

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
We noted yesterday that one count in NY-20 shows Republican Jim Tedisco up 12. Yet another count puts Democrat Scott Murphy in the lead by 6.

Again, there are still some 6,000 absentee ballots that haven't been counted. They will be counted by April 13th.

*** UPDATE *** By the way, Tedisco today announced he's stepping down from his position as state Assembly Minority Leader. (There was some question as to whether he would have retained the position anyhow.)

"Aides said Tedisco may need to raise as much $500,000 to cover legal costs as part of the vote counting," the Poughkeepsie Journal writes, adding, "Members of the conference rejected that Tedisco is being forced out as minority leader, saying it was Tedisco's decision. Democrats hold a 109-41 seat majority in the Assembly."
