CQPolitics upgrades the race

via CQPolitics;

Yet despite this successful track record, Fossella has felt the need to go vigorously on the offensive against an underfunded Democratic candidate, attorney Steve Harrison, an unusual tactic for an incumbent expecting a landslide.

With New York 13 hardly immune to the volatile political atmosphere facing Republicans in general this year, CQPolitics.com has changed its rating on the race to Republican Favored from Safe Republican.


All the same, there is the slight chance Harrison could threaten an upset in such an advantageous year for the Democrats. “Anything can happen,” Sheinkopf said. “He’s working hard and he’s hitting the bricks.”

To the volunteers and staffers and to Steve himself, this is why we do it.

Looks like the NYTimes has picked up the story.
