“… “New York is in play,” said Rep. Chris Collins, who has a speaking slot on Tuesday at the convention’s main stage. “New York would be one of the tougher states to win. It comes down to the four boroughs, because he’s going to win Staten Island.” …”
Back that statement up. I have not seen any evidence of this. Even with relatively high turnout in the Nassau special election, the Republicans blew it.
