Republicans probably seized control of New York's state Senate in Tuesday's too-close-to-call elections, Democratic Gov. David Paterson.

Paterson's comment on WOR radio in New York City Thursday conflicts with the public optimism of Senate Democrats. Republicans, however, are confident they overturned the 32-30 majority the Democrats won two years ago. That led to an unprecedented era of partisan gridlock.

Counting thousands of absentee ballots, recounts and any legal action are expected to take weeks. In recent years, some races weren't decided until January and February. The legislative session begins Jan. 1.

Democrats accuse the Republicans of trying to rush to a verdict. They say they'll make sure every vote is counted and they'll keep their slim majority.
