This is really the Rahm Emanuel vs Glenn Beck contest.
Results here locally at the Watertown daily.
With just over 3,000 votes tallied, Rahm is ahead of Glenn:
Bill Owens-- 50.8%
Doug Hoffman-- 45.5%
Dede Scozzafava-- 3.7%
Update [2009-11-3 21:55:37 by Jerome Armstrong]:
Now at 10,000 votes casted, and Rahm has pulled into a 10% lead over Glenn:
Bill Owens-- 53.2%
Doug Hoffman-- 43.2%
Dede Scozzafava-- 3.6%
If this holds up, there will be gnashing of Michelle Malkin teeth on the conservative blogs tonight.
Update [2009-11-3 22:0:18 by Jerome Armstrong]: Haha, it's turning into a route of centrist proportions in the Catskills tonight, with about 18,000 votes in:
Bill Owens-- 57.1%
Doug Hoffman-- 37.5%
Dede Scozzafava-- 5.4%
This is also the ACORN vs Movement Conservatives contest, we are told: There are reports that theyre bringing in the troops and theyre bringing in ACORN, said Hoffman." ACORN is kicking it and taking names, with 25K votes in:
Bill Owens-- 56.4%
Doug Hoffman-- 5.2%
Dede Scozzafava-- 38.4%
Update [2009-11-3 22:20:17 by Jerome Armstrong]: Oh yea, who could forget, it's round II of Biden vs Palin too in NY-23rd. Go Joe, 40K votes in:
Bill Owens-- 53.6%
Dede Scozzafava-- 4.8%

I just read that the NY Mayoral race is tight; woulda coulda shoulda for Dems if we barely lose to Bloomberg there.With 63% of the vote in, the Democrat Thompson is behind by 8,000 votes.
Update [2009-11-3 22:34:33 by Jerome Armstrong]:The latest, and it all depends on Owens to keep away a trifecta win tonight, with 205 of 606 Precincts Reporting - 34% of the vote and about 50k votes in:
Bill Owens-- 51%
Doug Hoffman-- 5%
Dede Scozzafava-- 44%
Update [2009-11-3 22:44:20 by Jerome Armstrong]:Still tightening, but Owens looks like he will pull it out, and that Scozzafava's tally maybe be the spoiler. 377 of 606 Precincts Reporting - 62% from 90K votes:
Bill Owens-- 49%
Doug Hoffman-- 5%
Dede Scozzafava-- 45%
Update [2009-11-3 22:49:30 by Jerome Armstrong]: Owens is comfortably ahead, but there were voting problems in NY-23rd today, and I read that multiple locations would be late in being counted, so this will likely extend into tomorrow, and not show up as an (assuming) Owens victory till then. As such, its not going to be in the lead story.
