Democrats facing electoral disasters in NV-02, NY-09?
But before we start talking about implications, let’s review the situations. NY-09. This D+5 seat was vacated by Anthony Weiner after pictures surfaced… and I don’t need to end that sentence: it’s never good for a politician’s career when the phrase ‘pictures surfaced’ is used to describe his or her situation.
