Bob Novak - NY -25 leaning democratic
Maffei has strong liberal backing and is a skilled campaigner who now has experience. Currently, he is unopposed for the Democratic nomination.
...and there are murmurs that the National Republican Congressional Committee
is giving up on this district to focus on stopping losses elsewhere.
In short, any Republican but Walsh would be hard-pressed to win this district, and Maffei is a strong candidate. Maffei is a favorite now, and by the fall, he could be a shoo-in. Leaning Democratic Takeover.
