GOP retains management of NY Senate regardless of Democrat victories

Democrats are set to have a numeric majority in the state Senate, but Republicans are retaining power.

The special election on Tuesday has the opportunity to shift the balance of the legislature, putting Senate Democrats in the majority for the first time in years. Felder has long sided with the GOP.

The party's next high-profile defensive campaigns will come this summer in Wisconsin, where Democrats have already flipped a state Senate seat and a seat on the state Supreme Court since the start of 2018.

In Westchester County, Democratic Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer beat Republican Julie Killian in a race that Republicans had hoped would be close.

"I don't know how this can be healthy in any way for good government when every elected official that controls every element of the government is a Democrat from New York City", Griffo said.

Because of Felder's help, nonetheless, Republicans will keep in cost at the least by means of the tip of the legislative session in June.

News 12 reached out to Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins via Skype in Albany, who tried to put a positive spin on things.

In the Bronx, Democratic Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda faces Republican Patrick Delices (deh-LEE'-sehs).

Stern will fill the seat vacated by Republican Huntington Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci. Democrats say they'll now focus on winning a clear majority in November. Although a Democrat, Senator Felder conferences with the Republicans, which gives the Republicans the majority.

If the Democrats take the Senate, they would then control the Assembly and the executive chamber, making an unbalanced legislature, according to Republican Senator Jim Tedisco (R-Glenville).
