The spotlight Tuesday was supposed to be on the special election in the 37th state Senate District. That's because a key Democrat who has caucused with the GOP announced he'll stay put, keeping Republicans in charge at least until June.
Democrats over-performed in other NY races Tuesday, but they had focused first on the 37th State Senate District, which was vacated after the incumbent was elected as Westchester County executive.
But Felder dashed those hopes Tuesday before the polls closed, saying he didn't want a fight for Senate control to mar the last weeks of the legislative session.
"I believe it is my obligation to prevent an unprecedented and uncertain late session political battle that will only hurt my constituents and New Yorkers", he said. Democrats were optimistic that Assemblywoman Shelley Mayer would win and then all they would have to do is get Simcha Felder to join the fold.

Republicans hold the Senate by the slimmest majority possible, at 51 to 49 seats, and losing even one or two seats could further hamper their ability to enact Trump's already slow-moving agenda.
