New York Democrats needed four decades to gain control of the New York Senate. The Republicans needed just five months to take it back. The New York Times has details:
ALBANY - Democrats appeared to have lost their majority in the New York State Senate on Monday, in a stunning and sudden reversal of fortunes for a party that has controlled the chamber for barely five months.
A raucous leadership fight erupted on the floor of the Senate around 3 p.m., with two Democrats, Pedro Espada Jr. of the Bronx and Hiram Monserrate of Queens, joining the 30 Senate Republicans in a motion that would displace Democrats as the party in control.
For Republicans, this is a coup -- in both senses of the word.
