Democrats could regain control of NY State Senate

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. - It was supposed to be a good year for NY State Senate Republicans - pundits had them picking up two or three seats -solidifying their majority.

A day after elections, and it's a very different outcome with two races still too close to call.

The Democrats could now regain their control. Senator Neil Breslin, a democrat, says it's about time.

Republicans currently hold a 33 to 29 majority in the senate - 32 votes are needed to pass a measure.

Still, the last time the Democrats held a majority, infighting was common place and not much got done.

Breslin acknowledged that difficulty, but told NEWS10 this time would be different.
