Is Jim Tedisco ready to concede? Tedisco's out

Tedisco-MurphyUpdate at 3:55: Tedisco's officially out.
_________

Let's ask the special election magic 8 ball. Answer: the signs point to yes:

+ CapNews9 reported last night that "sources" told it that a concession could come as soon as this afternoon.

+ Liz Benjamin reports that she was told by "a source close to Tedisco" that the candidate was looking to get a hold of Scott Murphy's personal phone number. Presumably he wouldn't be calling to set up a man date.

+ PolitickerNY's Jimmy Vielkind reports that Tedisco's inner circle has been discussing concession -- and may be looking to bury it in the Friday afternoon news cycle.

The unofficial count has Murphy up 401 votes on Tedisco with about 900 absentee ballots still to be counted.

"Presumably he wouldn't be calling to set up a man date".

Well, listen folks, I hope they do go out on a man date. If for no other reason than we all get to use the word "bromance".

So this comes full circle from the right-wing media calling a potential Tedisco win a mandate to Murphy and Tedisco possibly going on a man-date. I'll buy them a bottle of wine if they're in my neighborhood, that's for sure, if for nothing else than to celebrate the death of upstate coverage on Wonkette.

I'm so happy this is over. I dont think I could take much more.

I'm so happy I could just....vote.
