Mixed Results For GOP Backers of Gay Marriage
Two of the races involving State Senate Republicans who voted for sam-sex marriage that were too close to call on election night look like they are close to being resolved. After a recount Hudson Valley Sen. Steve Saland looks to have defeated his opponent Neil Di Carlo by 107 votes. Meanwhile, Sen. Roy McDonald of Saratoga appears to have lost his primary to Kathleen Marchione by a narrow margin. Sen. Mark Grisanti, another Republican support of same-sex marraige won a clear victory on election night while his colleague Sen. Jim Alessi chose not to seek reelection. Both sides of the debate over gay marriage are claiming victory despite the clearly mixed results.
