Chit chat with Yepsen supporter

8:45 p.m.: Just chatted with Celeste Caruso, local Realtor, Sustainable Saratoga board member and friend of Democratic state senate candidate Joanne Yepsen.

Caruso says Yepsen is well-liked in Saratoga and has a good chance in the election, although "it's hard to unseat an incumbent."

"Traditionally any in-roads (for Democrats in a mostly Republican area) -- which we made with Kirsten Gillibrand and Scott Murphy -- to get our foot in the door is a triumph," Caruso said.

Residents of outlying areas in the 43rd Senate district don't know Yepsen as well, she said. But she's crossing her fingers.

Yepsen expected to arrive here shortly.
