RochesterTurning is reporting that there may be a retirement coming on the Republican side of the New York State Senate this year. If so, that’s one of only two more seats needed for the Democrats to take control of the Senate. As one commenter there points out, Joe Bruno is unlikely to be sitting idly by while this happens, so it remains to be seen what comes next.
And I can tell you for certain that the Conservative Party in this state, upon whose largess most Republicans get elected, is absolutely digging it’s heels in on CMCE, so they’re going to be very, very concerned as well.
More’s to come, certainly. Stay tuned!
