John McHugh (R, NY-23) was just named Army Secretary. The district is a little less Republican than NY-20 (it has a +1 PVI for Republicans). Democrats won a big special election State Senate race in part of the district a couple years ago. Republicans should have an edge with the PVI plus (I’m assuming) a solid registration advantage and more local elected officials to choose from. My parents live in this district.
