Morning Digest: New York Democrats now have power over redistricting, but will they use it?

The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, Carolyn Fiddler, and Matt Booker, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, and David Beard. Programming Note: This is the last Digest before the Daily Kos Elections crew takes off for Thanksgiving. The Live Digest will return on our site on Monday, and the next edition of the Morning Digest will hit your inboxes on Tuesday morning. Have a happy—and safe—holiday!

Democrats went into the election needing to net two seats in the GOP-gerrymandered Senate to achieve supermajority status, which they've long enjoyed in the Assembly thanks in part to that chamber being gerrymandered by Democrats instead. Election night returns, which did not include absentee ballots, prematurely showed Republicans ahead in many races, but as mail votes were counted, Democrats surged into leads across the state.
