GOP retains management of NY Senate regardless of Democrat victories

GOP retains management of NY Senate regardless of Democrat victories

Steve Stern, a former Suffolk County legislator who ran as the Democrat candidate, defeated Republican candidate and civil litigator Janet Smitelli in the race to represent the 10th Assembly District in Long Island. But Mr. Felder, who was elected in 2012 as a Democrat but nearly immediately declared his intentions to sit with Republicans, remained an outlier. Democrat Shelley Mayer won a double-digit victory in what had traditionally been a swing seat, covering parts of the county close to New York City.

"I imagine it's my obligation to stop an unprecedented and unsure late-session political battle that may exclusively harm my constituents and New Yorkers", he stated. But Republicans will stay in charge at least through the end of the legislative session in June thanks to the support of a breakaway Democrat, Sen.

Democrats stated they might now concentrate on profitable a transparent majority in November, once they predict opposition to Republican President Donald Trump will immediate an enormous Democratic turnout. And Syracuse-area Sen. John DeFrancisco ranks second in command in the Senate as deputy majority leader.

"Today's wins will once again give Democrats a numeric majority, and come November we will win even more seats", said the spokesman, Mike Murphy.

NO GENOCIDE: Trump Tightens Turkey's Grip Over US Policy on Armenian Genocide
In January the French president, Emmanuel Macron, added 24 April to the French calendar to commemorate the events 100 years ago. On Tuesday, the Armenians honor the memory of people killed in the genocide, which started in Ottoman Empire in 1915.

Democrats already control the Assembly and hold the offices of governor, attorney general and comptroller.

Democrats also retained two state Senate seats, giving the party a 32-to-31 numerical advantage over Republicans in the state's upper house, though one Democrat who caucuses with Republicans will continue to deny them a working majority.

But it wasn't until early April, after negotiations on the state budget were complete and amid pressure from Democratic activists and a surprising primary challenge from Cynthia Nixon, that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced the dissolution ofthe I.D.C. On Tuesday, Cuomo spokeswoman Dani Lever said he remains committed to a Democratic takeover of the Senate.
