Bronx, NY - An attorney who worked for Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Hillary Clinton has beaten the former leader of a Democratic splinter group that helped Republicans keep control of New York’s state senate

Alessandra Biaggi defeated Bronx Sen. Jeff Klein on Thursday in the Democratic primary for the 34th state Senate district.

Biaggi challenged Klein, saying more progressive leaders were needed in office.

Klein formerly led the senate’s Independent Democratic Conference. The group of eight Democrats broke with their party for years to support Republican control of the chamber.

The split allowed Republican leaders to keep bills on gun control and abortion from coming to a vote.

The breakaway Democrats reunified with the party earlier this year in a deal that saw Klein become the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat.

The IDC had absolutely nothing to due with abortion not passing this was anti IDC garbage to try and frame leftists as conservatives.

The IDC riashyim brought abortion up for a vote back in their first year and they didn't have the votes to pass it, because 1 democrat Ruben Diaz opposed it.

If they had there way it would be law now.

I have no idea who is worse but VIN should not be reprinting rubbish.
