Recent polling and ratings from several sources indicates that the race for New York's 21st Congressional District is a "toss-up" 12 weeks before Election Day.
The stories, from Real Clear Politics , Roll Call, The Rothenberg Political Report, and Daily Kos say the contest between Democratic incumbent Bill Owens of Plattsburgh and Watertown-area investor Matt Doheny, a Republican, is too close to call with three months to go.
Also on the ballot is Green Party candidate and environmental activist Donald Hassig of Colton.
“Political pundits believe either candidate can win this race, which makes these next 90 days all that more critical,” said Doheny, the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties’ candidate.
“Every day, I talk to business owners and ordinary New Yorkers about how I can help create an environment where companies not only survive, but prosper," Doheny. And I am comparing those pro-growth policies with my opponent’s dismal record of job losses, higher taxes and more spending.”
