ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York voters will soon settle several contentious congressional matchups and decide whether Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo deserves a third term.
In western New York, Republican Congressman Chris Collins is seeking another term despite federal charges of insider trading. In the Hudson Valley, Republican Rep. John Faso faces Democrat Antonio Delgado in a race considered a dead heat. And in central New York, first-term Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney hopes to fend off Democrat Anthony Brindisi.
In the governor's race, polls suggest Cuomo is far ahead of Republican Marc Molinaro and three third-party challengers. Tuesday's ballot also features a contest for state attorney general between Democrat Tish James and Republican Keith Wofford.
Also, Democrats are aiming to win control of the state Senate, the GOP's last bastion in the Legislature.
