Representative Scott Murphy and the Blue-ing of the 20th

GLENS FALLS—Scott Murphy, a Democratic businessman from Glens Falls, will be sworn in as the next congressman in the 20th district, after Republican Assemblyman Jim Tedisco issued an official concession.
At a downtown intersection for his first public appearance since a special election March 31, Murphy walked to the corner towing his three children and returning his wife’s smiles. He made a brief statement, then took questions and conducted interviews.
“We’re having a great day, obviously,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of work in front of us, and I’m excited about getting to Washington and getting to work.”
Murphy is the second consecutive Democrat elected in the district, which has a 70,000 more enrolled Republicans than Democrats.
