Sorry Technical Problems

NYS Democratic Leader Jay Jacobs Will Have To Go

Democratic Loses on Long Island and Racial Diversity

Jay Jacobs lost Long Island for the Democratic Party.  This year his AG candidate Kathleen Rice who was the front runner at the start lost the primary.  He also lost all the Surrogate Court and all the judge ships in Nassau his home county.  More importantly he lost the State Senate seat of both Foley and It looks like Johnson.  This 2 loses pending the outcome in two other races can give control of the senate to the GOP.  He also has allow the GOP to capture 7 or 8 congressional seats in the state this year.  This is the second year in a row that the GOP made major gains on Long Island.  The game change is Al Sharpton and the black leadership which is making noise that Cuomo's team lacks diversity.  Andrew Cuomo hits back at Rev. Al Sharpton's 'lack of diversity  Look for Charles King a Cuomo insider to take over the state democratic party very soon.
