Races to watch in New York

U.S. Congress


  • 1st Congressional District
See also: New York's 1st Congressional District elections, 2014
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
See also: New York's 11th Congressional District elections, 2014
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.
  • 18th Congressional District
See also: New York's 18th Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Sean Maloney defeated the 19th District incumbent Nan Hayworth (R) in the newly drawn 18th District by 3.7 percentage points. In 2014, with a better idea of the district's constituency, Hayworth and Maloney are set for a rematch.
  • 21st Congressional District
See also: New York's 21st Congressional District elections, 2014
Having only won the redrawn district by 1.9 percentage points in 2012, Rep. Bill Owens may face another tough election. Owens is 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.
  • 23rd Congressional District
See also: New York's 23rd Congressional District elections, 2014
Rep. Tom Reed (R) is facing a challenge from Martha Robertson (D) in the general election. The 23rd ranks as competitive on every one of Ballotpedia's measures for the most competitive districts in 2014.


New York State Legislature
