Arcuri (D-NY 24) Gets Potential Challenge From Left

The “Working Families” party in New York is left of left-of-center, for perspective.

Democrat Les Roberts of German in Chenango County said Friday he has been asked by leaders of Working Families Party to run for the 24th Congressional District seat now held by Democrat Michael Arcuri of Utica.

“They are apoplectic over his decision not to support the health care bill,” said Roberts, a professor at Columbia University and one of four Democrats to seek the House seat in 2006.


Richard Hanna, the Republican who vied against Arcuri in 2008, announced earlier this year that he would also run again.

Arcuri is *ahem* not a safe incumbent. NRCC take note?
