Not Much Daylight Between Tedisco and Murphy in the First Debate

SARATOGA SPRINGS–Trying to find someone who attended yesterday’s debate between Jim Tedisco and Scott Murphy but is not affiliated with either campaign not easy. Figuring out who won is even more difficult.
I finally came across someone who claimed neutrality (though he admitted he is an enrolled member of the Working Families Party, which endorsed Murphy in the election for Kirsten Gillibrand’s recently vacated House seat), and asked him for his take.
“I didn’t see it as much of a debate, so much as a public questionnaire,” Phil Markham, a 55-year-old retiree who drove to this Victorian oasis from rural Rensselaer County, told me.
