Race Analysis

10/28/10 -- This Southwest Nassau County district was won by Carolyn McCarthy in the mid-1990s, and has become steadily more Democratic since then. But the New York suburbs have had some shocking upsets of Democratic candidates this cycle, and a campaign poll showed McCarthy in trouble earlier in the fall.  Keep an eye on this one.
