For Republicans, it was a scheme that failed...Creating a 63rd Senate District in hopes of winning it and holding control of the Upper House.
Today, Democrat Cecilia Tkacyzk used the last votes to be counted to win the 46th SD race over Republican George Amedore by 19 votes.
That leaves the GOP with just 30 of 63 seats and the balance of power in the Democratic leaning (on the issues) IDC.
Republicans in the Empire State are no longer able to do much of anything. The Governor is in pretty much complete control, with only the IDC providing a little bit of moderation around the edges.
