This is not the liberal district it was prior to the 2010 redistricting, when the prior snake-shaped district was designed to keep Maurice Hinchey in office.

We have highlighted the race between Republican Rep. Tom Reed and Democratic challenger Martha Robertson in NY-23 many times. In part because it’s my home district, but mostly because it is a swing district which leans Republican but includes liberal Tompkins County, making it competitive. It’s not hyperbole to say the...
