Before announcing his retirement in January 2014, incumbent Bill Owens (D) was a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.[20]

The National Republican Congressional Committee added Elise Stefanik (R) to their "On the Radar" list in November 2013. According to the NRCC, candidates that make this list receive "...the tools they need to run successful, winning campaigns against their Democratic opponents."[21][22]
