The campaign arm of the New York state Senate Democratic conference in the last six months raised more than $1.7 million after securing a supermajority in the chamber during last year's elections. 

The conference is also set to report $1.3 million in cash on hand in its latest six-month campaign finance filing. The full report is expected to be released later Thursday.

Democrats in the state Senate over the last year have sought to flex their supermajority muscle, with lawmakers approving a budget that boost education aid for schools at records levels and backed new criminal justice law changes. 

The Democratic conference gained a full working majority in the state Senate in 2018, a wave year for the party, and secured a supermajority in 2020, which would allow them to override gubernatorial vetoes alongside the supermajority-empowered Democratic-controlled Assembly.
