SCOTIA -- Republican Assemblyman George Amedore declared victory in the race for the new 46th District Senate seat, but his Democratic opponent may have eked out a victory after all. WAMC’s Ian Pickus reports.

Amedore appeared headed to the upper chamber in the New York state Legislature after leading with 54 percent of the vote nearly three hours after polls closed Tuesday night, but Democrat Cecilia Tkaczyk, a Duanesberg school board member, claimed victory too.
