Democrats in New York flipped a New York Assembly seat on Tuesday, winning a seat that has been in GOP hands for nearly four decades.

Democrat Steve Stern, a former Suffolk County legislator, beat out Republican Janet Smitelli in the 10th Assembly District, a Long Island seat, with 59 percent of the vote, according to Daily Kos.

The district has been represented by a Republican since 1978.
