NY Dems Win Seat, Come Close to Senate Majority

posted by Alan Greenblatt

Aubertine_2Democratic state Rep. Darrel Aubertine won a special state Senate election yesterday, moving his party within two seats of ending the GOP's decades-long dominance of the upper chamber in New York.

AP: "With all the precincts reporting, Aubertine had 27,901 votes, or 52 percent, to 25,345 votes for Barclay, 48 percent."

Update: The New York Times has a longer take on this election.
