Would It Be Good To Have A Republican in 11th Congressional District?



Would it be logical for Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York’s Democratic members in the House of Representatives to accept or even welcome a Republican winning the upcoming special election in the 11th Congressional District? ¬†That seat was held by Michael Grimm, the only Republican House member from New York City. ¬†Republicans hold a 245 to 188 edge over Democrats in the House and a member of the majority may be more successful than the minority members in advancing New York City’s interests. ¬†Mayor de Blasio, when asked that question by Anna Sanders of the Staten Island Advance, didn’t buy it.
