Gillibrand-Sweeney Race Now Seen As Toss Up By Congressional Quarterly

CQPolitics.com has changed its rating on the race for Congress in New York's 20th District, now calling it - essentially - a toss up.

The online arm of the non-partisan Washington-insider paper Congressional Quarterly has put the race between Republican incumbent John Sweeney and Democrat Kirstin Gillibrand in the "no clear favorite" column.

CQ had previously had the race listed as "leans Repiblican."

CQ also made an adjustment in the race for the seat held by Republican Rep. Randy Kuhl in the state's 29th Congressional District. Kuhl faces a stiff challenge from Democrat Eric Massa.

Earlier this week CQ adjusted three other congressional races in New York that it considers competitive, all moving one step toward the Democratic candidate.
