Supported by ByJesse McKinley Nov. 23, 2018 ALBANY — It is the party of Theodore Roosevelt, Nelson A. Rockefeller and, yes, President Trump.

But after an Election Day shellacking, the New York Republican Party has hit bottom. The party lost a whopping eight seats in the State Senate, evaporating its razor-thin majority, and got pounded by Democrats in every statewide race, extending a losing streak that dates to 2002. The best that might be said for the Republicans was that they did not lose any ground in the State Assembly, where they are … [Read more...] about Republicans Hit Rock Bottom in New York.

By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: November 12, 2018 at 8:32 pm | UPDATED: November 13, 2018 at 9:33 am By Jonathan O’Connell, Robert McCartney and Patricia Sullivan Amazon will open major new outposts in northern Virginia’s Crystal City and in New York City, splitting its much-sought investment of up to 50,000 jobs between the two East Coast sites, according to people close to the decision-making process. An announcement could come early as Tuesday, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they had signed nondisclosure agreements with the company. An Amazon spokesman declined to comment. The company has said it would make a decision on the high-profile project, which it calls HQ2, this year.
