Money is the lifeblood of any political campaign, especially in competitive races. And the race between Tom Reed and Martha Robertson is shaping up to be just that.
Steve Greenberg, a political pollster at Siena College, says it’s only recently that New York has seen truly competitive congressional races.
“We saw it five years ago, we saw it three years ago, we saw it last year and it seems almost certain that we are going to see it again next year,” Greenberg said.
It may seem like the 2012 elections are barely behind us, but in New York’s 23rd congressional district the race for 2014 is on.
