NY-21 a "reasonable" takeover for GOP
May 11, 2012 - Chris Morris
Good morning all, and happy Friday to those of you who do the Monday to Friday thing.
Stuart Rothenberg, a contributing writer for Roll Call, the newspaper of Capitol Hill, reported this week that New York's new 21st Congressional District represents a "reasonable takeover" opportunity for House Republicans.
The district, as you know, is currently represented by Plattsburgh Democrat Bill Owens. He faces several challengers, including Republicans Matt Doheny and Kellie Greene, as well as Green Party candidate Donald Hassig.
"Three Democratic Northeast seats — one in New York (currently held by Rep. Bill Owens), one in Massachusetts (held by Rep. John Tierney) and the third in Rhode Island (held by freshman Rep. David Cicilline) — look like very reasonable takeover opportunities, assuming presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney doesn’t get buried in the fall," Rothenberg writes.
