2014 was a bit of a mixed bag for the Republican Party in New York.
Nationwide the GOP picked up huge wins in races for governor, the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, where they took over the majority. Here in The Empire State, though, Republicans did poorly in statewide races, losing big in the races for governor, attorney general and comptroller.
However, the party was victorious in almost all of the key races for the state senate where they now have a full majority after spending the last two years in a power sharing agreement with the breakaway Independent Democratic Conference.
In this program, Ed Cox, the state party chairman, sits down with us to talk about regaining the senate, the future of the party in 2016 and the recent announcement by popular Congressman Chris Gibson that he will leave the house after this term and may seek statewide office in 2018. Watch the full program above.
