    Delegation would be a mistake. Remember, Democrats have won every single seat in upstate New York this decade. I personally feel that having a bunch of swing districts would be more beneficial to the democrats upstate with most  everything being swingy, especially with the fleeting Republican dominance showing kNot racks in the region. Odds are, Democrats are going to have to get used to a Staten Island Republican, and a Brooklyn Republican based on what we are seeing there. So as opposed to lock in 8 or 9 Republicans, I think a roll of the dice is in order. Sure, they may get 10-11 seats in a wave year, but if they average 5-6 throughout the decade, that is better than locking in 8, imo

      what happens to Turner if he stays on. His district will have to grow a bit and to make it Safe R it has to grow into Brooklyn. But Middle Village, Howard Beach, and the Rockaway Peninsula are probably not even half a congressional district, so Brooklyn will probably be the majority of the district. Will Turner get primaried?
