NEW YORK’S 22ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: Claudia Tenney (R)

Challenger: Anthony Brindisi (D)

Current polling: Anthony Brindisi (D) 46, Claudia Tenney (R) 45 (Siena, 10/18)

Why this race matters: Known as a bipartisan consensus builder as a state legislator in the New York State Assembly, Brindisi has continued to be re-elected to his post with strong support across the political spectrum. In 2016, Donald Trump received 57% of the vote in Brindisi’s Assembly District, yet Brindisi bested Trump’s vote total by nearly 9,000 votes. A top pick up opportunity for Democrats, Brindisi continues to maintain a slight lead over incumbent Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney. Watch this East Coast race at the beginning of the night as an indicator of things to come.
