Mr. Comptroller

It’s over.

Tom DiNapoli just got the votes needed to become the new state comptroller.

He’s being congratulated while two of his staffers are wiping away tears as they stand in the aisle next to me. Legislators are walking over to DiNapoli, shaking his hand and prompting a blur of flashes from the cameras photographers perched near his desk.

UPDATE: That was fast.
