|U.S. House, New York, District 1|
|Elections and appointments|
|Next general||November 4, 2014|
The 1st Congressional District of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Tim Bishop (D) will be challenged by Lee Zeldin (R) and Jason Strom (G). Bishop ran uncontested in the Democratic, Working Families and Independence Party primaries on June 24, 2014. Zeldin defeated George Demos in the Republican primary, and also ran uncontested for the Conservative Party nomination. Strom ran unopposed for the Green Party.
New York's 1st is considered a battleground district in 2014. Bishop has been in office for 10 years, but in 2012 he won re-election by a mere 4.6 percent margin of victory. The 2012 presidential elections leaned Democratic as well, but President Barack Obama won the district by only 0.5 percent. Bishop's seat is viewed as vulnerable by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and Bishop is a member of their Frontline Program to protect vulnerable incumbents. Zeldin has received help from his party as well, as the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) added him to their "On the Radar" list.
