Valerie Berlin and Jonathan Rosen are leaving the offices of the State Senate Democrats to start their own, currently nameless, political consulting shop.

The move is notable in that these are rare Democrats on something of a winning streak. Berlin was the strategist in last year’s pickup of three seats for the Democrats in the Senate; Rosen was her deputy at the State Democratic Senate Campaign Committee.

We’re told that Senate Minority Leader David Paterson is likely to be a client.
