  • Senator Felder Stays With The GOP, Denying Democrats Ruling Majority

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.

A narrow win in deep red Arizona on Tuesday night highlights how real and close this danger is for Republicans.

In the 32nd District in the Bronx, Democratic Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda faced Republican Patrick Delices.

Democrat Luis Sepulveda has won a NY state Senate special election in the Bronx.

"The voters have spoken, and we again have 32 Democrats in the state Senate", said Sen.

The Democratic Party has made its 40th gain in a state legislative race since the inauguration of President Trump, picking up a Long Island-based seat in the New York State Assembly.

Republicans previously had a one-seat majority in the 63-seat Senate - plus Felder.

The Senate Democrats also issued a statement, saying a "blue wave" is sweeping the country, and they fully expect to pick up enough Democratic seats in the November elections to take back the Senate.

A spokesman for the Senate Republicans, Scott Reif, says the GOP Senators are "thrilled" and called him "an important and trusted member of our conference". Democrats say they'll now focus on winning a clear majority in November.

Cuomo suggested that Democrats will be coordinating their campaigns for all NY offices: statewide, congressional and legislative. "This conversation will continue in the morning", she said.

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.
