NY 21st district race down to the wire

Posted: Updated:

In northern New York, voters are deciding whether to return Congressman Bill Owens to office.

Owens cast his ballot Tuesday morning in Plattsburgh, hoping to win the newly drawn 21st congressional district. It's a rematch with Republican Matt Doheny and it could be just as close as Owens' two point victory in 2010.

"I'm sure it'll be a close race, obviously we think that folks have gotten the message about where I stand, you know, that I'm somebody fighting for jobs for the district and also someone who is interested in Main Street," Owens said.

"Well you know it confirms what our own poll is -- so two polls tell us its a dead heat. We are going in to the final five days -- neck and neck, want to make sure people out there understand that we have a difference," Doheny said.

Doheny cast his ballot in Watertown. Recent polls have shown he has narrowed a double digit gap to a virtual tie.
