New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says any end to the Democratic schism in the state Senate isn't going to happen until next year.
The Senate is now controlled by a coalition of Republicans and a faction of independent Democrats who left their party’s main conference.
Cuomo’s vowed to return Senate control to the Democrats, he’ll heal the split –or- work to defeat Republicans and independent Democrats in the fall election.
On Monday, he told reporters that it will be next year before any Democratic reconciliation will happen. Neither party nor breakaway officials offered any comment to support such a notion.
