Gov. Cuomo, Speaker Heastie, Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins (photo: Governor's Office)Despite facing tough battles in districts that they narrowly won two years ago and being on the verge of defeat in some places, Democrats also flipped a few seats and will grow their large majority in the State Senate, retaining control of both chambers of the Legislature by wide margins.

New data proves Trump administration efforts to battle COVID have not just been effective but are SAVING LIVES
By Duncan SmithThe way Democrats and the party’s propaganda division, the ‘mainstream media,’ have treated President Donald Trump and his administration regarding their top-notch, no-holds-barred approach to confronting the COVID-19 pandemic is a national disgrace.No doubt people from other countries who were watching those jackals tear down our president day after day, despite the fact that he deployed every level of power and every resource available, were sometimes disgusted as well.After all, when the man said a month or so ago that he believed we’d have a COVID vaccine before the election...

And there’s little expectation among state Democratic leaders that the situation will improve by 2022, when Republican Sen. Roy Blunt is up for reelection. The party holding the White House — as Democrats will with President-elect Joe Biden — traditionally loses ground in midterm contests.Missouri voters don’t register wi...
