ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Republicans will regain control of the New York Senate after a recount completed Saturday handed control of a key seat on Long Island to the GOP candidate.

The final vote tally gave Republican Jack Martins a narrow win over Democratic Sen. Craig Johnson in the 7th Senate District in Nassau County.

Democrats went into the November elections with a 32-30 majority in the chamber. They have controlled the Senate for two tumultuous years.

Justice Ira Warshawsky (war-SHAW'-skee) finished the recount Saturday morning.

The action gives Republicans their only power base in a state where Democrats control every statewide position and the Assembly.

The judge denied Democrats' request for stay of his decision pending an appeal.
