Jim Tedisco, the Republican candidate in the March 31 special election for Kirsten Gillibrand’s old House seat, is now distancing himself from Rush Limbaugh.

“Rush Limbaugh is meaningless to me,” Tedisco told an editorial board meeting of the Oneonta Daily Star. “The only constituency I’m worried about are the residents of the 20th Congressional District.”

This race is going down to the wire, with a poll from a week ago showing Tedisco with only a four-point lead, after he’d previously led by 12.
