Democrat pulls off surprise win in Ulster County Senate race

ALBANY Ė Democrats picked up another victory in the State Senate after the opening of the final paper ballots this morning in a long-contested race in Ulster County.

Democrat Cecilia Tkacyzk will represent the sprawling Hudson Valley and Mohawk Valley 46th Senate District that Republicans created during last yearís redistricting process with the idea that GOP candidate George Amedore would easily win.

But Tkaczyk capitalized on the GOPís failure to pay much attention to the race until it was too late in October; the Albany County Democrat had, in the end, a better absentee ballot strategy than Amedore, especially in the more Democratic-leaning southern end of the district in Ulster County. Thatís where the final ballots were counted this morning.

What her victory means remains to be seen.
