District 19 is not on any rader screens but John Hall is running a great campaign in this district against incumbent Sue Kelly. This is a district in transition with many people from the NYC area moving up to such towns as Middletown and the gay community moving into the Hudson Valley. John Hall is a former musician with many famous friends and has Sue Kelly on the ropes for the first time in her career. John is a great campaigner and this race is very winnable. http://www.johnhallforcongress.com
District 20 is currently held by Republican John Sweeney. His opponent is Kristen Gillibrand who is also running a great campaign. This district includes the cities of Glens Falls and Hudson.

John Sweeney has recently made the list of the 20 most corrupt Congressman by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. That latest revelation has made this a race to watch. http://www.gillibrand2006.com
District 24 is an open seat due to the retirement of Sherwood Boehlert. Mike Arcuri is the Oneida District Attorney and the Democratic candidiate in this race.
