From the Queens Courier:
The Queens GOP leadership made a bold move Saturday at their March Executive Committee meeting by endorsing City Councilmember Dan Halloran to run in the newly created 6th Congressional District. Party leaders strongly felt that with this unique opportunity Halloran was the best candidate to win this seat for the Republican Party, and Halloran graciously accepted the nomination with a rousing speech about the need for change in Washington.
The new NY-6 is now drawn to encompass Murray Hill, Bayside, Bayside Hills, Oakland Gardens, Fresh Meadows, Auburndale, East Flushing, Flushing Murray Hill, Queens Boro Hill, Briarwood, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Glendale, Middle Village, Maspeth and Ridgewood. Many of these neighborhoods have one and two family homes and have been represented by Republican elected officials like Senators Padavan and Maltese and approximately 40 percent of this newly carved district is currently represented by Councilmember Halloran.
Eh, I don't think so.
How the district actually breaks down based on current representation:
Crowley = dark blue
Meng = pink
Lancman = light blue
Halloran = red
