Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Kathy Hochul told reporters this week the majority coalition formed by the Independent Democratic Conference and the Senate Republicans was “an aberration” that blocked the full passage of the 10-point women’s agenda.

“This has been an aberration the last few years to have people elected as Democrats, they were sent to Albany as Democrats by their voters, to them acting as Republicans,” Hochul said in New York City. “Yes, there were some accomplishments, but I’m always raising the bar.”

Hochul was at a rally on Thursday for the Women’s Equality Party, a ballot line Democrats are creating meant to promote the Women’s Equality Act, a package of message introduced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that has languished in the Legislature.

The event included Senate candidate John Liu, who is in a primary challenging IDC Sen. Tony Avella (Hochul stopped short of backing Liu).

Republicans in the state Senate have passed the measures piecemeal, but stopped short of allowing a vote on the provision designed to codify the Roe v. Wade decision into state law, but opponents contend is an unwarranted expansion of abortion.

IDC Leader Jeff Klein, a Bronx Democrat, sought a vote last year on the abortion provision by attaching the measure as an amendment to a different bill, but that measure failed a procedural vote. Klein said the episode showed there were not enough votes in the Senate for the abortion plank.

But Hochul disagreed, saying the coalition agreement between the breakaway Democrats and the minority Republican conference blocked the full passage of the agenda.

“I believe that if the Democrats who were elected as Democrats several years ago, sat on the correct side of the aisle, these accomplishments would have happened, except we would have had the 10-point Women’s Equality Agenda,” she said.

The majority coalition, formed at the end of 2012, saw a number of significant measures pass, including a signature gun control law proposed by Cuomo. Coalition leaders also tout the Senate helping pass state budgets before the April 1 deadline.

Cuomo is now campaigning on the record of accomplishments that has come, in part, from a Senate control by the IDC and GOP.

“I’m not convinced that that was required to have those enacted,” Hochul countered. “There were Democrats elected — enough Democrats to have the control of the Senate several years ago. So if those Democrats had organized where the voters sent them to organize and where they had been voting, we would have gotten this done as well.”

A deal brokered in June by Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio resulted in a pledge by Klein to end the alliance with Republicans and form a new leadership coalition with the mainline Democratic conference.

“That’s the change we’re going to have in January in Albany,” she said. “We’re going to have a team of individuals who don’t think stopping at the one-yard line is enough. We’re going to get all the way over there.”

Hochul’s take on the coalition comes as she faces a Democratic primary next month from Tim Wu, a Columbia professor who is campaigning alongside Zephyr Teachout, a Fordham law professor challenging Cuomo for the Democratic line.
