BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Democrats are poised to take control of the Erie County Legislature after the party flipped one district in Tuesday's election.

Republican incumbent Legislator Ted Morton (R-8th District) -- who represents Alden, Lancaster and part of Cheektowaga -- lost to Democrat John Bruso.

The GOP previously had a 6 to 5 advantage, but Morton's loss switches control to the Democrats.

All other county legislators won re-election.
