Seven pivotal New York races where your $20 can help flip the result.

Today, Gotham Gazette published an updated version of my Op-Ed, “Can Democrats win the state Senate? How Progressive is Cuomo? New Yorkers are about to find out.”

Only one seat needed — ten are possible.

Dems only need to flip one GOP-held seat to control the state Senate and, therefore, the state Legislature — I think ten are possible — unblocking progressive legislation passed by the Assembly and blocked by the GOP-controlled Senate.

Your $20 can have the biggest impact in seven races.

Read my op-ed for details, including an explanation of the odds in the most hotly contested state races.
