Republicans may have Gov. Kathy Hochul partly to thank if they win back a battleground seat in the Hudson Valley previously occupied by Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado — helping them in possibly retaking the House majority in the midterm elections.
Marc Molinaro, the Republican Dutchess County Executive, leads Democratic lawyer Josh Riley 51.2% to 41.6% in the Nov. 8 general election for the 19th Congressional District, with only about 7% of voters undecided, according to a new poll conducted for the pro-Molinaro Freedom Council USA.
The Democratic governor plucked former congressman Delgado to become her running mate for lieutenant governor in May after Brian Benjamin resigned as her No. 2 when he was charged in a federal pay-to-play finance scheme dating back to his days as a state senator.
The Molinaro-Riley race is now among a half dozen New York contests that appear to be competitive this year, after the state’s highest court invalidated plans for a so-called “Hochulmander” maps that would have left the GOP with just a couple super-red seats.
Republicans need to net only five seats in the 435-seat House to win back the gavel, meaning the road to a GOP majority could run through the Empire State.
