ALBANY—They’re still coming in, but Republicans say they have reason to be optimistic about absentee ballots in the 20th District congressional race.
“The Republicans I talked with last night felt very confident about the composition of those absentee ballots,” said Robert Turner, a political science professor at Skidmore College. “Most are from Saratoga, where Tedisco ran well.  There is also the perception that the snowbirds are disproportionately Republican, as are the military ballots.”
Last night at his campaign wrap party, Tedisco aide Bill Sherman said that of the 5,907 ballots that had been received, there were 798 more from enrolled Republicans than Democrats.
