After much hand-wringing, vote-contesting and court-battling, the race to replace Carl Kruger as the State Senator of the 27th District is finally over. Republican David Storobin traveled to Albany yesterday and was sworn in, followed by some welcoming comments from Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. The above is Skelos’ comments on the floor of the Senate, provided by the Senate’s YouTube channel, with a tip o’ the hat to Politicker for bringing it to our attention.
