One of the most watched races in the Hudson Valley and nationwide between Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and Republican Assembly Member Mike Lawler in the 17th Congressional District is still too close to call.
Maloney, the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is seeking a sixth term in Congress. If he loses this race, it will be the first time in 40 years that someone holding that position loses a reelection bid.
Maloney is currently representing the 18th Congressional District. Redistricting put his home in the newly drawn 17th Congressional District – which is comprised of Rockland, northern Westchester, Putnam and part of Dutchess County.
On the campaign trail, Maloney has focused on issues like climate change, protecting LGBTQ+ and women’s rights, public safety and fighting for workers unions.
Lawler has been painted by Maloney as a supporter of former President Donald Trump's policies. But he's told News 12 that he is willing to work across party lines to get things done. He's focused on public safety, immigration and inflation.
