32

NYSRPA - 25 April 2018 - 10:25am

With wins in yesterday’s special elections, Democrats now have a numeric 32 seat majority in the State Senate.

Bonus:  Republicans even lost a Long Island Assembly seat they’ve held for 40 years.

The only thing keeping the Republicans alive is that Governor Cuomo and enough members of his own party do not want the Democrats in charge of the upper house.  No matter what baloney is said public about party unity their actions say otherwise.

If the Democrats seriously want full control of the legislature look for these things to happen:

The Set Up

NYSRPA - 24 April 2018 - 3:58pm

Governor Cuomo does not want the Democrat clown caucus in charge of the State Senate.

With the Republicans on track to lose today’s special election, Democrats should have the numeric majority of 32 seats by tomorrow and Cuomo does not want to put up with their stupidity in an election year.

Let’s look at the facts.

From City & State, “Felder: Cuomo hasn’t talked to me about reuniting the Senate since 2017“:

State Sen. Simcha Felder says he’s still waiting for a call from Gov. Andrew Cuomo … The governor has not spoken to Felder on the topic of rejoining the Democrats since well before the IDC announced it was dissolving and folding back into the Democratic party, Felder said. Furthermore, he said, no one gave him any advance notice about the IDC’s plans to reunite, either. “The governor has not. We have not had a conversation recently,” Felder told City & State …”
