Here’s the official reaction to yesterday’s election, just emailed to me, from Democratic State Party Chairwoman June O’Neill:

It’s clear that all politics really are local and that the pundits really missed the mark on this one. For weeks all we’ve heard was that driver’s licenses would be a key issue in these races. That just didn’t come to pass. The fact that Democrats maintained their majority in Nassau and expanded it in Suffolk and won strategic victories upstate just goes to show you how out of touch the conventional wisdom was with the reality on the ground. Last year we won historic victories in Congress and the State Senate. Yesterday we built on those gains with wins from Niagara Falls to Nassau County, from Plattsburgh to Jamestown, in Auburn, Colonie, Troy, Amsterdam, Rockland, Monroe, Suffolk and Lewis County. We are on track to continue that trend in 2008.
