Madden victory covered by the Times Union here and The Record here
Big surprise of the night, voter turnout down. Down by roughly 25%.
We are not surprised by the Mayor's Race: See our October 31 analysis, More Numbers.
Not surprised by the GOP majority on the Troy City Council either. See our predictions on those races as well.
We did believe the D's would win two, not one, At-Large seats making it 5-4 Democrat. That's democracy for you.
We'll analyze the numbers later on, as last night's victory sinks in. Let's just say, a look behind the numbers shows ominous clouds gathering for the GOP in Troy.
A quick word as well. Lets be gracious to those defeated. Keep the gloating to a minimum. The Gordon and Wiltshire camps are licking their wounds this morning. They can read numbers. They know they lost. They do not need a constant reminder of that simple fact.
