New York Democrats move state to the left after 'historic' legislative session

Published June 19, 2019

An article in The Washington Post about the landmark session of the New York State legislature that has produced some of the nation’s most far-reaching liberal policies, demonstrating the strength of the left wing after the Democratic Party gained full control of state government for the first time in more than a decade, interviews James Battista. “There are chunks of New York lawmakers’ agenda, such as opposition to Trump, that might sell well in other parts of the country but a lot of it is just long-term Democratic dreams,” said Battista.
