Republicans across New York are being forced to run hard on the eve of Election Day.
Republicans are trying to hold on to their 31-to-29 majority in the state Senate. A Siena poll this weekend showed two Republican state Senators from Long Island and Queens are in hard-fought races that could determine whether their party hangs on to its thin majority. A poll from Siena College this weekend found Senator Caesar Trunzo of Suffolk County trailing his Democratic challenger and Senator Serphin Maltese of Queens in a tight race.
Looking at Congressional races, the number of New York Republicans in the House of Representatives is could dip below six because of a series of tight races.
