The line in the sand for state Senate supremacy this year runs right through Queens County.
Race to seal fate of State Senate?
With Senate Republicans clinging to a razor-thin two-seat majority, pundits said the Maltese-Addabbo race could be the linchpin that determines who calls the shots in the upper house.
Addabbo slammed Maltese for flooding the district since shortly after the 2006 campaign with office newsletters that he says are really thinly veiled campaign ads.
Maltese blasted Addabbo for taking three donations, totaling nearly $30,000, from billionaire George Soros and his family.
(...Addabbo faces a primary against Baldeo, who boasts $400,000 in campaign funds.)
