2014 Races to Watch

 

In 2014, there are a total of 244 state legislature, state executive, and Congressional seats up for election in New York: 150 NYS Assembly + 63 NYS Senate + 27 NY US House of Representatives + 4 state-wides.

In many of these contests, incumbents will run unopposed or face an opponent with low levels of institutional support.

Gotham Gazette's Races to Watch list is comprised of contests affecting NYC districts, and in which either: incumbents face competition within their own parties in the primary election; incumbents face strong challengers from another party in the general election; or candidates are campaigning for an unoccupied seat, left unoccupied by legislators who won elections for other offices or who had to vacate upon legal conviction.
