The last two Democratic congressional nominees in my home district NY-23, which stretches along the “Southern Tier,” have been Ithaca-area liberals. Nate Shinagawa ran a credible campaign in 2012, and lost by almost exactly the party difference in the district, which is R+3. Democrats had high hopes for Martha Robertson in 2014,…
