      I think it will be a 2 seat loss in each house for the Democrats.  Whelan and (unfortunately) Gordon will go down in the senate.  While the Democrats will pick up one assembly seat in the fourth, I think they’ll lose one in the third and both seats in the 7th.  For a net loss of 2 assembly seats.  So, it will be 22-18 and 45-35.
