It was like a bomb went off in Albany. For the first time ever, the State Senate Judiciary Committee declined to confirm a governor’s nominee to preside over the state’s highest court.

This week, Marcia Kramer explored the decision, the ramifications and whether it represents a new balance of power in New York.

The point

The state is reeling from the loss of Governor Kathy Hochul to install Hector Lasalle as the first Latino to head the New York Court of Appeals. Is the fight over or was it just the first round?

One of LaSalle’s staunchest supporters, Senator Luis Sepulveda of the Bronx weighed in. Watch his conversation with Kramer here or in the player below.
