The Day After Election Day
Here's What Happened

    Andrew Cuomo will be the next Governor of New York State. 
    Eric Schneiderman pulls out a victory in the race for New York State Attorney General.
    It was 2AM when Tom DiNapoli declared victory in the race for New York State Comptroller.
    The New York State Senate is now controlled by, well we don't know yet, and may not for several days as there are three State Senate races that are too close to call. 
    New York State Assembly candidate McLaughlin wins (see below).
   Republicans take control of the House of Representatives, while Democrats barely keep control of the U.S. senate as Schumer and Gillibrand win re-election but not by huge margins. 
    Locally all Democrats won re-election, and no Joe McLaughlin did not beat 81st Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, but in the 108th Assembly District (in upstate Rensselaer County) Steve McLaughlin defeated Assemblyman Tim Bishop.
   Both ballot proposals were passed by the voters, so we look for another Charter Revision Commission next year.
