The fight for a control of the New York state Senate will be intense this year and Democrats are hoping to pick up seats. Republicans, who are currently in the majority, say they intend to remain in control of the chamber. 

Capitol Correspondent Karen DeWitt sat down with the senator leading the Democrats’ campaign efforts, Senator Michael Gianaris. The Queens Democrat also discussed why he’s decided not to run for state attorney general.

Karen DeWitt is Capitol Bureau chief for New York State Public Radio, a network of public radio stations in New York state. She has covered state government and politics for the network since 1990.
