GOP faces historic loses in NY
via Newsday ;
"Never in the history of the Republican Party - going back to before the Civil War - have there been so few members of the GOP representing the Empire State in Congress. Currently, there are six New York Republicans in the House of Representatives and 23 Democrats.
After the election on Tuesday, the number of Republicans is expected to dwindle further. With four GOP seats at risk of Democratic takeover, the state could be left with as few as two Republican lawmakers."
