State senate candidates rally ahead of special election

  • “Political gamesmanship must not be allowed to jeopardize the leadership committee structure and staff of the New York State Senate and push this institution into turmoil,” Felder said

On Tuesday, Cuomo spokeswoman Dani Lever stated he stays dedicated to a Democratic takeover of the Senate.

The special election will be held on Tuesday, April 24, and could shape partisan control of the New York Senate for the rest of 2018.

"We're thrilled with Senator Felder's decision to continue to caucus with our majority", said Senate GOP spokesman Scott Reif.

Democratic Sen. Simcha Felder of Brooklyn now sits with Republicans, meaning the GOP could retain control even if Democrats win a numeric majority.

In Westchester County, Democratic Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer declared victory over Republican Julie Killian.

"We are committed to flipping the I.D.C. seats and, following that, flipping red seats to blue", Lisa DellAquila, a leader of True Blue NY, a liberal activist group, said in a phone interview on Tuesday, referring to the Independent Democratic Conference, a group of breakaway Democrats who have since reconciled with their party.


Republicans now have a one-seat Senate majority.

Tuesday's special Senate elections could decide whether Democrats wrest control of the chamber from Republicans, who now have a one-seat majority.

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.

The state Assembly, which already had a Democratic majority, didn't see a change in party power.

Andrew Cuomo is urging a rogue Democratic lawmaker to end his alliance with Republicans and allow Democrats to lead the state Senate.

Many of the Republicans who represent central and northern NY benefit from the current power dynamic in the Senate.
