The Evening After The 20th Congressional Race
It's over. Chris Gibson beat Scott Murphy. But for this reporter, in covering the story, there is so much more to it.
Seldom do you see a race where two amazing guys are both vying for the same seat. In watching them debate and listening to them talk about issues and family and community, one could have almost wished that BOTH candidates could be seated in Congress.
That's called "class." In the end, even a visit from the mighty Bill Clinton couldn't help Scott Murphy hang on to his seat. The voters had the last word.
And if last night is any hint of things to come, I believe we'll see Gibson and Murphy working together for the betterment of their district. Well done, gentlemen! What a great day to be Americans! If the caliber of candidates in every race could match these two...
By the way, I'm not biased. I don't live in the 20th.
