Cuomo urges rogue senator to rejoin Democratic caucus

Cuomo urges rogue senator to rejoin Democratic caucus”

"Our Republican colleagues bemoan the pace of the nominations, but we see with the administration's quick, sloppy vetting process that the Senate's need to vet nominees is more important than ever before", Senator Chuck Schumer of NY, the Democratic leader, said Wednesday. On paper, they got their wish.

His reason for his defection, he said, is simple and consistent: He claims no loyalty to any party, but believes that the Republicans offer him more support for causes he cares about, including religious schools in his district, and is unapologetic about getting whatever he can for his constituents. And in the 37th District in Westchester, Shelly Mayer, in a stellar win, beat out GOP candidate Julie Killian. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), ranking member of the committee, said at that time nominees still were subject to the 60-vote threshold; and, the "blue slip" process that required a judicial nominee to have the backing of home state senators was still in place. "And what I do know again is that we are building momentum".

Republicans expressed confidence that Felder's decision will hold and the partisan struggle in the Senate will be put off until the general elections this fall.

McConnell said he and other Republicans reluctantly agreed to those changes at the time to try to keep then-Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) from pushing through the "nuclear option" to reduce to 51 from 60 the votes needed to confirm Obama administration nominees.

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post stated that Tuesday night's election results give Dems the leg up on 2020 and beyond. "We will field a strong candidate who will win in November". "There's a lot of great things about NY". But New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo had a warning for Felder.

This slow-walking has serious implications for Trump's ability to act on the historic opportunity presented him to change the composition of the judiciary, which depends on Republicans holding the Senate. These are not usual days.

The Democrats also have a 13-4 majority on county Board of Legislators.

Many people who spoke to News 12 say regardless of which party ultimately takes control in Albany, they want to make sure that their interests are well-represented. That matters, according to The New York Times' Nate Cohn, because "a permanent absentee list cuts against big partisan turnout edge".

Meanwhile, Democratic Sen. Dick DurbinRichard (Dick) Joseph DurbinGOP moves to cut debate time for Trump nominees Senators to Trump: Let Mueller finish Russian Federation probe Democrats fret over GOP changes to Mueller bill MORE (D-Ill.) is offering two amendments that would give Senate backing to calls for Trump not to fire Mueller.

"The remaining issues, they will not do, period", said Cuomo.
