Special election held in the Bronx
Democrats in New York flipped a New York Assembly seat on Tuesday, winning a seat that has been in GOP hands for almost four decades.
With almost 80 percent of precincts reporting, Democrat Shelley Mayer topped her GOP rival, Julie Killian, 58-percent to 42-percent, forcing, forcing Killian to concede the race around 10:15 p.m.
Democrats on Tuesday won a key state Senate race that will give them the majority in their chamber - but they still won't actually control the state Senate. A Democratic takeover of the Senate now could set up a legal battle as well as open questions of how to allocate funding and staff for the final weeks of the session, which ends in June.
"The voters are sick and exhausted of Democrats that empower Trump Republicans", Senate Democratic spokesman Mike Murphy said in response to Felder staying with the GOP.
In the second contest, Democratic Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda easily dispatched Republican Patrick Delices in the Bronx.
"Today's wins will once again give Democrats a numeric majority and come November we will win even more seats", said Senate Democratic spokesman Mike Murphy.

"The governor's position is clear: the Democrats must unify to take back the majority", Lever said. "This conversation will continue in the morning". Upheaval and court battles among partisans is not the preferred method of governing. "I intend to work with all of them in the remaining days of session and move the people's work forward in an effective and orderly manner".
