While 32 should be the magic number for control of the Senate, Brooklyn Democratic Sen.

Republicans are warning Democrats that it won't be easy to take over the NY state Senate, a chamber the GOP has controlled for most of the last 80 years.

"We're thrilled with Senator Felder's determination to proceed to caucus with our majority", Senate GOP spokesman Scott Reif stated. In 2016, the Democrat candidate for New York Assembly in the 10th Assembly District lost by 9,000 votes. In that race, Luis R. Sepúlveda, a Democratic assemblyman, handily won the 32nd District, dispatching his Republican rival, Patrick Delices, and a Reform Party candidate, Pamela Stewart-Martinez.

Only one was in Nassau County, in the 17th Assembly District, where John Mikulin's win kept Republican control after the resignation of Thomas McKevitt to become a Nassau County legislator.

Because of Felder's help, nonetheless, Republicans will keep in cost at the least by means of the tip of the legislative session in June.

Many of the Republicans who represent central and northern NY benefit from the current power dynamic in the Senate. Democratic leaders had hoped Felder might return if they win Tuesday's elections in Westchester County and the Bronx. However since Democrats received each of Tuesday's races, they now have a one-seat numeric majority.

Democrats have spent the last month trying to unify in the Senate, with a faction of Democrats who had sided with Republicans dissolving, rejoining the mainline fold.

If the Democrats take the Senate, they would then control the Assembly and the executive chamber, making an unbalanced legislature, according to Republican Senator Jim Tedisco (R-Glenville).
