N.Y. GOP Seeks Opportunities Outside the Big Apple

Beyond the Big Apple, Republicans see great opportunities in the Empire State.

Upstate and suburban House seats are not nearly as entrenched as in the five boroughs, argue New York Republicans. What’s more, these regions are far more sensitive to national issues, most recently the government shutdown and the flawed rollout of President Barack Obama’s health care law.

“The topsy-turvy nature of what’s going on in D.C. is putting things in play in New York, even though they shouldn’t be,” GOP consultant Brendan Quinn said.

The country’s largest city — and its Democratic bent and financial resources — cannot be ignored. (Last week’s column examined New York State’s Democratic up-and-comers.) As a result, it will likely be a long time before New York Republicans can mount serious challenges to Democratic Sens. Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.

So New York GOP operatives are looking deep into the bench for future talent.
