House Majority PAC Memo Spotlights State of NY Congressional Races

May 26, 2016

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Majority PAC released a memo laying out the state-of-play in congressional races across New York just over a month ahead of the state’s June 28 primaries and just under six months from the November general election. In the memo, House Majority PAC Executive Director Alixandria Lapp details general and specific vulnerabilities facing GOP congressional candidates in competitive districts across the state.    

“New York’s congressional Republicans find themselves increasingly imperiled in 2016,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Alixandria Lapp. “The likelihood of increased presidential turnout, the toxicity of the Republican ticket, and extremely flawed GOP incumbents and challengers have only strengthened Democrats’ position heading into fall. With Democrats poised for pick-ups, House Majority PAC will play a significant role in helping ensure victories in House races across the Empire State.”  

House Majority PAC, the leading super PAC for House Democrats, was founded in 2011. During the 2012 election, Democrats won three competitive New York congressional races (including two pick-ups) in which House Majority PAC invested more than $2 million combined. House Majority PAC has already placed airtime reservations for this fall targeting NY-01 and NY-24 and further strategic investments will be made as races develop across New York and the country.
