The Democrat’s win was not decided until about one month after the November election. Longtime Republican State Senator Stephen Saland, of Poughkeepsie, conceded the race December 13<sup>th</sup>, after a final count of absentee ballots and affidavits. The race was three-way, with Conservative Neil DiCarlo&nbsp; on the ballot, saying there needed to be a conservative choice in light of Saland’s&nbsp;&nbsp;vote in 2011 for the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York.&nbsp;&nbsp;WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne sat down with state senator-elect Terry Gipson in his home base of Dutchess County’s Rhinebeck, to see what he has in mind for his first term in Albany.</p><p> Mon, 07 Jan 2013 20:41:53 +0000 Allison Dunne 55227 at http://wamc.org Interview with Incoming New York State Senator Terry Gipson
