Roll Call breaks down the New York congressional races. I'm sorry that Louise Slaughter was redistricted out of Buffalo-- we wrote a profile of her six years ago that I think captures her strengths quite well. Brian Higgins is fine, but he is more of a constituent service sort of representative, and I prefer someone who sees the big picture. Kathy Hochul's district is arguably the most Republican in the state. Although its boundaries get moved around a lot, the idea seems to have been to make it a safe seat for national Republicans. Tom Reynolds, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, sat there, and pieces of it have been represented by the likes of Jack Kemp and Bill Paxon (who was also chair of the NRCC). Hochul isn't safe, exactly, but it looks like she will be blessed by her opposition.
