New York: Espada and Monserrate Flip to give Republicans Senate Leadership Again

Prayers for New York Working Already! Marriage Rally Tomorrow.

We don’t have too many details, but NY Senators Pedro Espada Jr. and Hiram Monserrate switched to the Republican party this afternoon. This switches the Senate control to the Republicans. The Democrats tried turning off the power to stop the vote. They’ll probably try to challenge it on Monday, but most likely everything followed protocol.

The good news: the marriage neutering bill is most likely dead for this year.

Keep up the phone calls to your representatives.

Keep up the prayers (hearts still need changing).

and find out about the NYCF marriage rally here.

    Awesome news! This is by far the best thing that’s come out of New York in quite a while! Makes you wonder if the marriage issue had anything to do with it.

    Isn’t this crazy? I’m interested to hear what happens with Diaz, who evidently had originally made a deal to support Smith as majority leader in exchange for a promise that the gay marriage bill would not go to the senate floor.

    Someone’s not buying the liberal lies of same sex marriage over there. Maybe Tim Gill ticked someone off? Great news.
