CQPolitics upgrades race to Dem Favored
The Republicans’ lack of a consensus replacement candidate less than two weeks before the July 10 candidate filing deadline, with no top-tier prospects at hand for the party’s Sept. 9 primary, has prompted CQ Politics to change its rating on the race in New York’s 13th Congressional District to Democrat Favored from No Clear Favorite.
They join Swing State Project who has already upgraded the race to Leans Democratic.
Cook Political Report is lagging, still having this race at toss-up.
After the FEC reports come out these other ratings could shift even further to Likely Dem/Dem Favored.
I changed that last paragraph to indicate the analysts other than CQ who have not shifted their ratings to Likely/Favored status.
