The Race For The Vacant State Senate Seat Has Great Importance For Albany

Posted:
This race for the vacant 52 district seat has great importance to the overall picture in Albany.

To understand, the Governor is Democrat, the State Assembly has a Democratic majority and should the vacant 52nd district seat go Democrat along with another vacant seat, the Democratic Party in New York would have a majority in the State Senate. That would give the Democrats power over both parts of the legislative branch and the Governor's Mansion.

Albany-based political expert Blair Horner tells Fox 40 HD news to pay close attention to the 52nd district race as it could greatly affect the state's legislative process.
