Redrawn Districts in NY Primary Pit Progressives Against Self-Funded Millionaire & Nadler, Maloney

Primaries in New York's redrawn congressional districts have led to heated battles within the Democratic Party that could have national implications. In the newly created 10th Congressional District, Dan Goldman, a conservative Democrat and heir to a multimillion-dollar Levi Strauss fortune, is running against a diverse field of candidates that includes Mondaire Jones, Yuh-Line Niou, Carlina Rivera and Elizabeth Holtzman. The New York Times endorsed Goldman without noting its publisher's connection to the millionaire. Many congressional seats have been "thrown into chaos by redistricting" and seem to favor more conservative candidates, says Alex Sammon, staff writer at The American Prospect who has been closely following local races.
