ECA's legislative consulting firm, Park Strategies, has provided an NYS legislative election update for us. In the Assembly, many Democrats have erased early deficits and appear at this point to have won their races. With the return of many incumbents along with a couple of surprises outlined within the document, the Assembly Democrats are poised to retain their supermajority with 107 seats to 43 Republicans as initially projected. At this point, the Senate Democrats appear to have grown their majority to at least 41 with the potential to go to gain two more seats (43) pending the outcomes of the Senator Harckham (D)/Rob Astorino (R) and Michelle Hinchey (D)/Richard Amedure (R) races. The current 41 seat total for the Senate Democrats assumes the following Democratic candidates will maintain their advantage and ultimately win the following key races: Senator Gaughran (SD 5), Senator Thomas(SD 6), Senator Gounardes (SD 22), Elijah Reichlin-Melnick (SD 38), John Mannion (SD 50), Senator May (53), Samra Brouk (SD 55), Jeremy Cooney SD 56), and Sean Ryan (SD 60). It also assumes that Senator Jen Metzger (SD 42) has lost her race. If any of these outcomes change obviously the total seats will change accordingly, however, the Senate Democrats appear to have a path to the 42 seats necessary to constitute a super majority.
