Last duel between Republicans and Democrats before the midterm legislative elections

Democrat Pat Ryan and Republican Marc Molinaro face off in New York State for the seat of Democratic Representative Antonio Delgado.

Inflation, crime, abortion.. A poll held Tuesday in a hotly contested US district will be the last opportunity for Democrats and Republicans to take the pulse of voters on these social issues, before the legislative elections in November.

Voters in Central New York State are being called to the polls to choose their new congressman to replace the current incumbent, Democrat Antonio Delgado.

Unlike New York City, renowned for being comfortably in the hands of the Democrats, this rural district is much more contested: in the last three presidential elections, it has voted like the rest of the country. For Joe Biden in 2020, for Donald Trump in 2016 and for Barack Obama in 2012.

This election is one of the first close polls since the United States Supreme Court struck down the federal right of American women to have an abortion two months ago, almost to the day.

Pat Ryan, the Democrat who is vying for the seat, has sought to turn the election into a referendum for or against New York women's right to have an abortion, accusing his Republican opponent Marc Molinaro of being too extreme on women’s rights issues.

The Conservative has campaigned on issues of inflation and crime, themes conveyed by the Republican Party through the country.

Those in power are watching this election closely, spending huge amounts of money to win it because they see it as a referendum on their benefits, a he pointed out in a press release.

In the midterm elections on November 8, Americans will be called upon to renew to win the 435 seats of the House of Representatives, a third of the Senate and about 30 governorships.
