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