As you know, back in November, 2012 the Democrats won the majority of Senate seats in New York State, but at the time, there was a serious rift between Senators Jeff Klein and Mike Gianaris.
Senator Jeff Klein had served as the Senate Democrat’s top political strategist heading the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee – until Senator John Sampson threw him into the dust and appointed Senator Mike Gianaris to fill that role. This was a big slap in the face to Senator Klein, and since that time, we have to wonder if that wound has ever healed.

For the Coors Light Beer Company: Any Press is Good Press
Once again, I am stating, for the record, along with Puerto Rican leaders throughout United States to express my outrage against the latest offensive Coors Light Beer ads that are plaguing our community in preparation of the 2013 National Puerto Rican Day Parade.
