Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, Putnam County, confirmed today he will seek a second term to the state Senate and not challenge Rep. Nancy Hayworth, R-Mount Kisco, Westchester County, in a primary.

“I’m totally focused on re-election to the Senate. It’s been a critical seat,” Ball told the Journal’s Albany Bureau. “The last election ended up deciding the balance of power, and I think similarly that it will continue to be a critical seat.”

Ball was elected to the Hudson Valley seat in November 2010, first winning a GOP primary—in which Senate Republicans tried to beat him—and then winning by about 2,100 votes against Democrat Michael Kaplowitz in the general election.

With Republicans holding a one-seat majority, every GOP seat is deemed critical. And in redistricting, Ball is expected to get a seat that’s more Republican based. His 40th District seat now has a slight Democratic enrollment edge. (ARTICLE)
