Nov 21, 2012 6:45 am
Jimmy Vielkind reports in the Times Union Republican George Amedore took the lead Tues., Nov. 20, finishing the day more than 100 votes ahead of Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk (KAT-chik), in the 46th State Senate District race. This is the third time since Friday the lead has shifted. Tkaczyk started the day roughly 30 votes ahead after absentee ballots were opened in Albany County, Monday. But Amedore surged in Greene County to gain the lead. The absentee and affidavit count began this week. Counting will continue in Greene County and begin in Schenectady County, Wednesday. Counting in Ulster and Montgomery counties will begin Friday and continue Saturday, if necessary. Amedore is expected to gain votes in Schenectady and Montgomery counties, but Tkaczyk should do well in Ulster County -- she won there on election night by nearly 8,200 votes.
