The political picture in the Hudson Valley has changed dramatically in the past day. Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney now turns his attention to seeking a fourth term in the House after his loss in the Democratic primary for state attorney general. Meantime, after a number of blows to members of the now dissolved Senate Independent Democratic Conference, one who survived his primary is now focused on mending fences and winning the general election.
