It’s the race to represent Hudson Valley voters in New York’s redrawn 17th Congressional District.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, a Democrat, stunned some when he decided to redistrict. Was it a brave move, or will his Republican challenger make him wish he hadn’t?
Maloney’s challenger, Republican Assemblyman Mike Lawler, is the man who introduced a bill in Albany to remove Mario Cuomo’s name from the Tappan Zee Bridge. He said if he comes to Washington, he won’t walk away from any fight.
Residents of the 17th Congressional District have strong opinions about the issues in the nation and their district. They weigh in this week.
Rep. Maloney and Assemblyman Lawler answer questions exclusively from constituents in the Hudson Valley on CBS News New York.
“The Point with Marcia Kramer” is broadcast every Sunday at 11:30 on CBS2 right after “Face the Nation”. Then turn to CBS News New York at noon for an extended conversation in “Exclamation Marks.”
