The Albany Times-Union is reporting that Democratic Assemblyman DiNapoli is the new Comptroller.
Congratulations Comptroller DiNapoli.
Now there will be one more special election besides the one to replace Senator Johnson.

Soon-to-be newly minted state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli will be holding a press conference at his new office (OSC headquarters, 110 State St.) an hour after this vote ends, members of the press have been informed.
DiNapoli will sign his resignation papers today, I’m told, creating yet another vacancy in the Assembly Democratic majority - that’s three special elections on the horizon.
Interestingly, Assemblyman Alexander “Pete” Grannis, D-Manhattan, who was nominated by Gov. Eliot Spitzer to serve as DEC commissioner, but has not yet left the Assembly, was “absent” from the comptroller vote today.
This is odd, because I saw him on the Empire State Concourse just after noon today."
