The race for the 20th, abridged

Also on Twitter are the campaigns of Jim Tedisco and Scott Murphy in the race for the 20th Congressional District.

Tedisco's page is what you would expect from a Twitter campaign. He asks for money, plugs his site (and his Facebook page - which is soooo yesterday) and posts little quips about this and that policy.

Murphy's has one post. Dude, why bother?

Libertarian Eric Sundwall doesn't have one because, I guess, he's a libertarian.

The special election is March 31. The seat was vacated by Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, who was appointed to the U.S. Senate in January.

The 20th Congressional District stretches from the Mid-Hudson Valley to the northern Adirondacks and includes Northern Dutchess and all of Columbia and Greene counties.
