ERIE COUNTY, NY - A big power switch is on the horizon in the legislative branch of Erie County.

For the first time in decades, Republicans are ready to take a slight lead in the legislature.

Right now, Democrats control the legislature by a margin of 6 to 5.

But there is one race in the 8th Legislative District, where Republican Ted Morton is poised to win over Democrat Wynnie Fisher.  This is after Democrat Terrence McCracken decided not to run for re-election in the district.

Again, Morton's win in this district will give Republicans the edge in the Legislature, and switch the scenario, so the GOP holds control 6 to 5.
