New York's 18th Congressional District is a battleground district in 2014. The Cook Political Report's Partisan Voter Index (PVI) rates the district as evenly matched between Democratic and Republican voters.[1] FairVote rates the district as 51.5% Democratic, which is still a highly competitive race.[2] In 2012, New York's 18th District voted Democratic in both the House and presidential races. However, Democratic incumbent Sean Maloney beat Republican Nan Hayworth by only a 3.7% margin of victory, and President Barack Obama won the district with a mere 4.3% margin of victory. Moreover, Maloney was first elected in 2012, and representatives serving their first term are often more vulnerable than those who have held office longer.

Aside from the Independence primary, in which Hayworth defeated Maloney, neither Maloney nor Hayworth faced challengers in their respective primaries. However, the general election will be particularly competitive because these two candidates faced off only two years prior. Republican challenger 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.
