“Did a New York Court Just Hand Democrats Control of Congress in 2024?”

Slate on last week’s decision from an intermediate state appellate court: “If Thursday’s ruling is upheld by the state’s highest court, both parties believe that Democrats could conceivably hammer out new district lines that conform to the state’s legal standards and still make reelection almost impossible for incumbent freshman Republicans like Reps. Mike Lawler and Marc Molinaro in the Hudson Valley, or Anthony D’Esposito and George Santos in Long Island. National Democrats have been very vocal about their desire to flip at least four, and possibly five, seats in New York, the state that produced the party’s biggest embarrassments on Election Day last November.”
