NY-24 Poll Shows Close Race

In my home congressional district, the retirement of centrist Republican Rep. Sherwood Boehlert has created what may be a golden opportunity for a Democrat to pick up a seat this fall. Michael Arcuri (D) was ahead of Ray Meier (R) by four percentage points in a new poll (which was admittedly commissioned by the Arcuri campaign). There's a long time to go until election day, and things will change drastically between now and then - but for a Democrat to even be competitive in this district at this stage of the game is a much different trend than we've seen for a long time.
