Rep. Tim Bishop (D) is seeking re-election in a district that has slowly become more conservative over the past decade. State Sen. Lee Zeldin is the Republican front-runner. With Zeldin's name recognition and both candidates' ability to win elections with the 1st District constituency, the district may be the scene of one of the more competitive races of 2014.
  • 11th Congressional District

Rep. Michael Grimm (R) was redistricted to the 11th District for his 2012 re-election campaign. Despite the district voting for President Barack Obama by 4.3 percentage points, Grimm won his bid by 5 percentage points. However, the 2014 campaign started early with numerous outside groups dumping money and attention into the race beginning in 2013. The attention could mean a more competitive race.
