    12 republican House seats between them.

    why would anyone in NY/NJ ever vote for a republican again given what the republican party did to them.

    maybe all 12 can't be had but seems like a huge window of opportunity.

    midterms are less than 2 years out and hurricane sandy impact will be felt for a long time.

    mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.

      have fought hard for funding after the storm, and that's what they'll win reelection on. Count on it.

        Exactly that.  Unless one of the Reps. flips off Sandy victims, I would assume all of the NJ/NY delegation (i.e. affected by storm) is safe barring retirements.  

        Our area of NJ is near Camden, so we are quite inland but we had some minor damage.  Yet I saw Runyan on my news and with Lautenberg touring the damage.  Or at least he was photographed behind him.

        These guys know how important the funding is for relief.

          He's an exception. He voted against relief, despite the fact that his constituents were affected by the storm. That district is too packed with Republicans for a Democrat to have much of a chance to win, but I wonder if Harris might get strong primary opposition.

            Probably more of a fat chance trying to get a more conservative primary effort though I wonder if anyone wants to primary him based off that.
