NY-13 now 3rd most likely seat to flip
Back on July 27th Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post had this seat pegged as the 7th most likely to flip to Democratic control. That was a jump up previously from the #10 spot. A month later this seat has now climbed his list and is currently sitting at the third most likely Congressional seat to flip for either party. In another month with his next update I wouldn't be surprised to see this climbing once again after the primaries are both sides are settled.
3. New York's 13th district (R): New York City Councilman Mike McMahon looks certain to roll in next month's Democratic primary even as Republicans still seem divided about their candidate -- former Assemblyman Robert Straniere. And, did we mention that the current Republican incumbent was chased from office due to an infidelity scandal? (Previous ranking: 7)
And more good news, Dan Maffei from upsate, NY-25 is holding the number 1 spot. Republicans are about to become extinct in New York.
