Wrong number for New England

U.S. House race in New York too close to call
A win by Tedisco would help Republicans prove they can win in northeastern states, where they hold just three of New York’s 29 House seats and none of New England’s 51 seats.

Your article about the congressional election in New York’s 20th congressional district claims the six New England states have a total of 51 congressional seats. Actually the total is 22 seats.


Right. We corrected: GBU Editor
