New York’s Republican party has little to celebrate Thursday, seemingly close to losing control of the state Senate in addition to losing the state for the presidential election.

Democrats are expected to hold a 33-30 majority in the state Senate, though a couple of races will not be concluded until absentee and affidavit ballots are counted.

Queens Councilman Eric Ulrich lost to Democratic Senator Joseph Addabbo.

According to a report in the New York Daily News, “The GOP’s best hope is to convince five renegade Democrats to join their team. Four Dems last year formed the Independent Democratic Conference and have worked closely with Republicans”

Former Councilman Simcha Felder, a Democrat who defeated incumbent Republican Senator David Storobin on Tuesday is also considered to be a potential partner with a Republican minority who would help the party maintain control of the chamber.

New York Republican US Senator Wendy Long was also defeated on Tuesday.

    44% of your ultra-orthodox readership have voted that hurricane sandy was a punishment or warning from God. This just goes to show what a group of demented ignoramuses you ultra-orthodox mamzerim are. You should know that the 89% of American Jewry who are not orthodox despise and abominate you and even some modern orthodox find you absurd and intensely disagreeable.

    Here we go again, Elliot, with your mathom, "I don't like you because you are not my kind, in fact I hate you, so much so, that I can't actually address myself to the comments in the article, but must interject my vituperation on these pages." For your information, there is a wide range of readership on these pages. Please feel free to escape from the tiny little box of misbegotten animus, in which you have chosen to lock yourself.

    To the Jewish Press Staff, thank you for articles of this kind, as they are informative, and though I am neither a Republican, nor Democrat, nor anything in between, or on either extremity, I appreciate them.
