midterm elections

  Democrats took a drubbing in the midterms.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Rutgers University political science professor Ross Baker tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock they could lose another Senate seat this week.

  The midterms got all the attention, but the Supreme Court has plenty on its plate.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Union College political science professor Brad Hays tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock about some key upcoming decisions.

This past Election Day, all three statewide incumbents were easily re-elected, the Assembly’s Democratic majority got bigger, but consistent with the overall Republican political tsunami seen across the nation, the Republicans took back control of the state Senate and picked up some New York Congressional seats.

    Republicans were ascendant in the midterms.

But in today’s Congressional Corner, Union College political science professor Brad Hays tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock that Democrats are down but not out.
