WASN'T THIS AN EPISODE OF CHEERS?

Dems regain control of Senate, Espada named majority leader (Richard A. D'Errico, Albany Business Review)

Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. has returned to the fold, giving the Democrats a 32-30 majority in the state Senate—again—and taking the title majority leader.

Espada (D-Bronx) said during a news conference this afternoon that his disagreement with fellow Democrats on June 8, which led to a Republican-led coup, “has never been about titles,” though he received the title of temporary president as a result of the coup.

“Today I stand here with another title,” he said.
