From The Politicker:
The breakaway Democratic caucus in the State Senate is trying to recruit a candidate to unseat Senator Toby Stavisky, a Democrat from Queens, as they seek to strengthen their control of the chamber.
A source with direct knowledge of the Independent Democratic Conference’s plans freely admitted the efforts to Politicker this afternoon.
“The IDC is actively seeking a candidate,” he said.
Ms. Stavisky represents Flushing, the sole Asian-majority district in the State Senate, which factored into the IDC’s thinking. “The district was created to give Asian-Americans a greater voice in government,” said the source, arguing that changing demographics had made her vulnerable.
