Defining Victory on Staten Island

While we wait for numbers to trickle in, here is one way to redefine victory in one interesting race.

In New York’s 13th congressional district, the often-overlooked Democrat Stephen Harrison is challenging Vito Fossella, and with basically no support from the state or national parties, Harrison may have a shot at breaking 41percent.

It would be the most any Democratic challenger has gotten against Fossella. So at the very least, he’d be able to make the case for being the guy again in 2008.
