    I don't know the vote margins for these districts.

    Peter King may be safely red, but we flipped a safely red NY district upstate, so I think we don't assume he can't be put in play.

    New Yorkers are experiencing first hand - the result of lack of investment in infrastructure. Let's help them learn that the Democrats are the ones who invest in safe and reliable utilities.

      They almost voted in Shinagawa over Reed in Upstate New York, too.

      I do not think there will be much partisan advantage from storm recovery, but I'll read your remarks below.

      •  LA became more red because refugees who (0+ / 0-)

        moved away and didn't come back were more likely to be Democrats than Republicans.

        The hardest hit edge of Staten Island is the most republican section of New York City. Their Rep is being investigated by the FBI. If they blame FEMA for not coming in fast enough they'll stay red. If they blame Bloomberg, they may not move either way, since he's independent. If they blame Cuomo and the state, they may get more red.

    •  King's district is not safely red. (2+ / 0-)

      The old one might have been, but it's not at all clear if the new one is. As I've said a few times in the past few days, his Democratic opponent, Viviane Falcone, received 41 percent despite having no money at all. That's not the mark of a safely red district.
