Republican New York Assemblyman Jim Tedisco on Friday morning disputed a new poll that shows he is trailing Democrat Scott Murphy in the special election for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D-N.Y.) former House seat.

The Siena Research poll found Murphy leading Tedisco by four points - 47 percent to 43 percent.

Tedisco said his campaign's internal polling shows he continues to lead as next Tuesday's election approaches.

Notably, the margin of error in the Siena Poll was +/- 3.2 percentage points, less than a point under Murphy's lead in the poll.

In the past couple days, reports have suggested that a recent Republican National Committee poll has the Republican with a three point lead in the race.
