Biden to blast debt limit plan in New York district the GOP flipped


Lawler could benefit from what may be a competitive Democratic primary. Liz Gereghty, the sister of Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, launched a campaign on Tuesday. Former Rep. Mondaire Jones, who previously represented part of the district, could also get into the race. Jones opted to run in a crowded primary in the 10th District, covering parts of New York City, after Maloney said he would run in the 17th District. Jones lost that primary to Rep. Dan Goldman.

House Majority Forward, the nonprofit wing of House Democrats’ leading super PAC, released polling by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm, this week showing Lawler had a 32 percent approval rating based on a survey of 506 voters in the district conducted May 5 and 6.

House Majority Forward and the National Republican Congressional Committee both launched ad campaigns on Tuesday supporting their party’s position on the Republicans’ debt ceiling bill. The NRCC announced a five-figure ad campaign targeting 35 vulnerable Democrats, while House Majority Forward is moving forward with a $1 million digital, research and messaging campaign criticizing Republicans for proposed cuts to government programs.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who is running for reelection, will also attend Wednesday’s event with Biden.

“I plan on going with him to Westchester,” Gillibrand said Tuesday evening. “I think it’s appropriate to go to Westchester to talk about the impact of not raising the debt ceiling since the full faith and credit of the United States is at risk.”
