Republicans hold most of the upstate Senate seats, although there are solidly Democratic seats in and around the urban centers of Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany. Noticeably missing from that list is Rochester, which has only Republican Senators.

Cooney is a former aide to the late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and the former chief of staff to Mayor Lovely Warren. He joins us from Rochester to talk more about his race against Republican Senator Joe Robach.
