Seven pivotal New York races where your $20 still matters
Today, I published “Reading the Tea Leaves — Will New York’s Senate Flip Blue for the Third Time in a Century?” With just days before the election, your money can still make a difference in tight races, especially critical for funding GOTV (get out the vote) efforts.
Only one seat needed — ten are possible.
Dems only need to flip one GOP-held seat to control the state Senate and, therefore, the state Legislature — I think nine are possible — unblocking progressive legislation passed by the Assembly and blocked by the GOP-controlled Senate.
Your $20 can have the biggest impact in seven races.
Read my story for details, including an explanation of the odds in the most hotly contested state races. My most recent Gotham Gazette op-ed also provides useful background.
