The special election for the 37th Senate district in Westchester County is set as Republican Dan Schorr has conceded the nomination to Julie Killian.

Killian, who had sought the seat unsuccessfully in 2016, won the endorsement of Westchester County’s GOP committee on Wednesday. Killian will face Democrat Shelley Mayer for the seat vacated by George Latimer, now the Westchester County executive.

“I entered this race because I could not sit on the sidelines while Albany politicians continue to get brought out in handcuffs for abusing the public’s trust,” Schorr said.

“The culture of corruption has given us the highest taxes in the nation and has bred silence from too many lawmakers afraid to rock the status quo. I felt strongly there was never a more important time to use my unique experience as a prosecutor, fraud investigator, and taxpayer watchdog to represent Westchester’s families. While we came up short in the nominating convention, I am proud of the issues we advanced and will continue to be an active voice for reform. I congratulated Julie Killian on securing the nomination and look forward to helping her become our next state senator.”

The special election is one of 11 that will be held around the state on April 24. But it will almost certainly be one of the most expensive given the stakes: control of the state Senate.

A deal to form a working majority with the mainline Democratic conference and Independent Democratic Conference would be triggered with a numerical majority in the chamber, which this race and the contest to replace Ruben Diaz in the Bronx would achieve. Democratic Sen. Simcha Felder, who conferences with Senate Republicans, would also have to be brought into the fold.
