Campaign overload

The fourth and final debate between Democrat Scott Murphy and Republican James Tedisco — the candidates in next week's special election in New York's 20th Congressional District — was held from 7 to 8 this evening in suburban Albany.

Between 7:30 and 9:45 p.m., the Freeman newsroom received a total of 14 e-mails from the two campaigns — eight from one side, six from the other — each one extolling their guy's virtues and slamming the other.

The final e-mail from the Murphy camp declared Murphy had won the debate.

The final e-mail from Tedisco's people declared Tedisco the winner.

And the total amount of material from these e-mails that will appear in the Freeman's story about the debate? Zero.
