BattlegroundRace.jpg
This candidate is running in a "race to watch" in one of the 20 chambers identified by Ballotpedia as a battleground chamber.

The New York Senate has a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of three seats, which amounts to 4.8 percent of the chamber. In 2012, a total of nine districts were competitive or mildly competitive. There were eight districts where the margin of victory was 5 percent or less in the 2012 elections. He is a former Republican member of the New York State Senate, representing District 46 for a brief period in January 2013.

After officially certified election results deemed Amedore the winner of the District 46 seat, he was sworn in as a legislator in January 2013. However, just days later (and 73 days after the general election), Amedore's opponent, Cecilia F. Tkaczyk (D) was named the winner after county election officials opened nearly 100 new ballots.[1]

The New York State Senate is a battleground chamber that Ballotpedia has identified as having the opportunity to switch partisan control in 2014. The New York Senate has a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of three seats, which amounts to 4.8 percent of the chamber. District 46 in the Senate has been identified by Ballotpedia and WAMC Northeast Public Radio as a battleground district that could determine control of the New York State Senate. In this district, Incumbent Cecilia Tkaczyk (D) and former state senator George Amedore (R) face off in a 2012 rematch. In 2012, the official results deemed Amedore the winner, but county election officials opened 91 new ballots in January 2013 which eventually gave Tkaczyk an 18 vote lead.[4]

Amedore ran in the 2012 election for New York State Senate District 46. Amedore ran unopposed in the Republican primary on September 13, 2012; he also ran on the Conservative Party and Independence Party of New York State tickets. Amedore was defeated by Cecilia F. Tkaczyk (D) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.

The 46th District was newly drawn, and seemed initially to favor incumbent Amedore. However, the race was close, as outside PACs poured money into the district supporting Tkaczyk. Although the official results shown below deemed Amedore the winner, county election officials opened 91 new ballots in January 2013 which eventually gave Tkaczyk an 18 vote lead. Amedore, who had been officially sworn into the Senate just days before, became the shortest tenured Senator in modern history.[5]
