Apple of their eye: Red dominoes could start to fall with Santos special election

February 13, 2024

Here is a look at the two people vying for Santos’s former seat in New York’s 3rd Congressional District and the New York Republicans most at risk of losing their seats in November. Former Rep. George Santos’s seatSuozzi represented the Empire State’s 3rd Congressional District from 2017 until 2023. Other Republicans at riskWhile Republicans may still hold on to the 3rd Congressional District on Tuesday, it will be the first of many Empire State challenges in 2024. The state will get a new congressional map for use in November, which is widely expected to be more favorable to Democrats, but before that can be factored, several incumbents are already in vulnerable positions. The new map is expected to be enacted in the coming months, ahead of the June 25 primary election and the Nov. 5 general election.
