A mention of the power-sharing coalition in the Senate elicited boos and hisses at the Democratic Convention in Suffolk County this morning.

Senate Democratic Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, one of the featured speakers at the convention this morning, noted the Democratic conference has a “numeric majority” in the chamber.

“The Republican minority was empowered by some to maintain control,” the Yonkers Democrat said, resulting a round of loud boos from the audience of Democratic delegates here.

Doubling down on the awkwardness: IDC Sen. David Valesky is here for the second day of convention.

“We’re not going to let that happen again,” Stewart-Cousins said.

She said Senate Democrats will “claim our rightful place next to our Assembly colleagues as the majority.”

Despite the boos, a resolution calling on the IDC to return to the mainline conference fold was tabled by delegates at the first day of the convention.

Not everyone is as upbeat about a Democratic Senate.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not endorse a full takeover of the Senate by Democrats in 2012, and has said he believes the coalition situation is working in the chamber (leading some to think Cuomo has outright given the coalition his blessing to continue).

Newly installed party chairman, former Gov. David Paterson, said on Wednesday Democrats may have to retake the chamber in a piecemeal fashion over the next election cycles.

“It’s possible, but I don’t want to raise expectations,” he said.
