NY-20: Tedisco (Campaign) Death Watch part deux: Concession Tomorrow?

Speak of the devil. Looks like a concession could come as early as tomorrow.
A finish line could be in sight in the race for the 20th Congressional District. With the numbers not looking good for Republican Jim Tedisco, sources tell Capital News 9 that Tedisco could concede to Democrat Scott Murphy as soon as Friday afternoon.
There are less than 1,000 paper ballots unopened, and Democrat Scott Murphy is leading with nearly 400 votes.
County election board workers were in Albany Thursday morning, reviewing a group of 200 votes here. Official numbers will be reported later. On Saturday, 600 ballots were counted in Saratoga County. Those numbers have not been reported yet. All of this leaves about 800 ballots to be opened.
Sounds like the only way Tedisco does not concede tomorrow is if the ballots shift toward him in a really dramatic way in the next 15 hours or so. Doubtful.
You watching, Norm?
