The campaign for New York’s 46th state Senate District contest has become one of the closest-watched races, ever since the district was created after the last round of redistricting.

Democrats argued the 46th was carved out specifically for then-Assemblyman George Amedore, but one of their own, Cecilia Tkaczyk, won the first two-year term. Amedore rebounded to take the seat in 2014. He's up for re-election this year and recently sat down with WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas.
