Statement from Senate Democratic Spokesman Mike Murphy
“Today's Siena poll demonstrates that Senate Democrats better represent the values of everyday New Yorkers. By a record margin of 20%, this state wants a Democratic State Senate. When it comes to protecting women, providing good jobs by raising the minimum wage, and enacting sensible gun laws, Senate Democrats better represent New Yorkers' values. It is now beyond clear that Senate Republicans have embraced the extremist right-wing of their party and have moved away from the average New Yorker. We agree with Governor Cuomo that there is no place in New York for Senate Republicans' extremist philosophy."
