Democrats' supermajority at risk in Westchester

As votes from Tuesday's elections continue to get tallied, the likelihood of Westchester Republicans breaking a supermajority in the Legislature is becoming more of a possibility.

The Democrats currently hold a 12-5 majority in the county's legislative body, but if the GOP wins two districts in which it has slim leads, they could break the veto-proof block with 10 Democrats and seven Republicans.

Earlier today, County Executive Rob Astorino (R-Westchester) appeared to be claiming victory over the supermajority, but later only committed to saying it looks good for the GOP.
