1st Congressional District

See also: New York's 1st Congressional District elections, 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.

The 11th Congressional District of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Michael Grimm (R) will face challengers Domenic Recchia (D) and Henry Bardel (G). All three candidates ran unopposed in the primary election on June 24, 2014. Grimm will appear on the Republican, Conservative and Independence Party tickets in the general election, while Recchia will appear on the Democratic and Working Families Party tickets. Bardel is running with the Green Party.

New York's 11th is considered a battleground district in 2014. Grimm won re-election in 2012 with a 5 percent margin of victory, but the district went Democratic in the 2012 presidential race, voting for President Barack Obama with a 4.3 percent margin of victory. Grimm's chances for re-election may also be affected the negative media attention he received after being indicted for 20 crimes involving his restaurant, Healthalicious, including tax fraud and hiring illegal immigrants.[16]

The 18th Congressional District of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Nan Hayworth (R) and Scott Smith will challenge incumbent Sean Maloney (D) in the general election. In the primary election on June 24, 2014, Maloney ran uncontested for the Democratic and Working Families Party nominations, but Hayworth defeated him in the Independence Party primary. Hayworth also ran unopposed for the Republican and Conservative Party nominations. Smith did not run in the primary, but will run as an independent candidate in the general.

New York's 18th is considered a battleground district in 2014. Maloney beat Hayworth in 2012 with a mere 3.7 percent margin of victory, and President Barack Obama won the district by only 4.3 percent. This election will be particularly competitive because Maloney and Hayworth faced off only two years prior. Hayworth held a U.S. House seat in the 19th District from 2010-2012, and after New York's redistricting, was defeated by Maloney in the 2012 18th Congressional District election.

BattlegroundRace.jpg
See also: New York's 21st Congressional District elections, 2014

The 21st Congressional District of New York will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Bill Owens (D) announced that he would not run for re-election, and the result has been a toss up race between Republican, Conservative and Independence Party candidate Elise Stefanik and Democratic and Working Families Party candidate Aaron Woolf. Matt Funiciello will also be running against Stefanik and Woolf on the Green ticket. Neither Woolf nor Funiciello faced competition in the primary election on June 24, 2014, while Stefanik battled with Matt Doheny for the Republican nomination. Although Doheny won the Independence Party's nomination, he was later nominated for a state Supreme Court judgeship, which removed him from the ballot and allowed the Independence Party to endorse Stefanik.

New York's 21st is considered a battleground district in 2014. Although Democratic President Barack Obama won the district by a fairly safe 6.1 percent margin of victory in 2012, Owens won by a mere 1.9 percent margin of victory that same year. In addition, with this being an open seat, none of the candidates possess the advantages that often come with incumbency, such as increased campaign finances and name recognition.

Neither Reed nor Robertson faced competitors in the primary on June 24, 2014.

New York's 23rd is considered a battleground district in 2014. The district voted Republican in 2012, but by a small margin, with President Barack Obama (D) losing the district by 1.2 percent and Reed winning U.S. House race by a mere 3.6 percent margin of victory.
