IDC: Independent Democratic Conference

IDC stands for Independent Democratic Conference, a group of Democratic Party senators from the New York State Senate elected as Democrats but sided with the opposition party to seize control of the body. The IDC planned to establish a third party, an independent caucus, or both in New York to prevent the Republican Party from gerrymandering the state senate districts of the eight IDC senators. David Valesky, Tony Avella, Jesse Hamilton, Jose Peralta, Diane Savino, and Jeffrey D. Klein were the IDC's eight remaining members at the time of its dissolution.

What is the Full Form of IDC

In 2011, John L. Sampson, the Democratic leader in the New York State Senate, and Klein, Savino, Valesky, and Carlucci disagreed, leading to the formation of the IDC. During the 2013–14 legislative session, the Senate was jointly presided over by the IDC and the Senate Republican Conference since the Senate Republicans lacked the necessary number of senators to create a majority. The Senate Democratic Conference's members re-joined the IDC after conversations with its former backer, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and in April 2018, Klein would take over as the Deputy Democratic Conference Leader.

The Democratic primary elections that followed in September saw victories for only Carlucci and Savino, leaving six of the eight former IDC members in the dust. In 2020, Carlucci decided not to run for re-election to the Senate and instead run to replace Nita Lowey as the congressman for New York's 17th congressional district. He placed fourth in the Democratic primary. Savino, the final IDC senator still serving in the New York State Senate, announced in February 2022 that he will not run for re-election.

In the November 2008 elections, the Democratic Party won 32 of the chamber's 62 seats, displacing the Republican Party for the first time since 1964 and seizing control of the New York State Senate. Four Democratic senators, Hiram Monserrate, Carl Kruger, Rubén Dáz Sr., and Pedro Espada Jr., did not back the party's leader, Malcolm Smith. Espada and Monserrate abstained when the senators met in the new session to choose a majority leader. A 31-31 tie in the Senate caused by Monserrate's later re-joining of the Democrats led to the 2009 New York State Senate leadership crisis, which was resolved when Espada re-joined the Democratic conference. 

Keeping Espada, Diaz, Kruger, and Monserrate in the Democratic coalition following the 2008 elections fell to Jeffrey D. Klein. She eventually became the deputy majority leader. The Republicans gained control of the parliament in the elections conducted in November 2010. The uproar led Democrats to oust Klein as their main strategist in December 2010. The independent redistricting committee and the Republican leadership worried that state senator David Valesky's district in upstate New York would be gerrymandered to make it more difficult for his supporters to vote in the 2013 State Senate Election. In January 2011, Klein resigned as the State Senate's deputy minority leader, citing differences with John L. Sampson.
