Flip. Paul Ryan does not save the day.
Democrat Anthony Brindisi denies the Republican one-and-done incumbent Claudia Tenney a 2nd term in the House.
Clearly a toss-up, as the result confirms.

New York's 22nd congressional district was represented by Democrat Maurice Hinchey from 2003 to 2010 but flipped in the 2012 election after the incumbent decided not to run for re-election. In 2014, the one-term Republican incumbent, Richard Hanna ran unopposed, although 26% of the ballots were categorized as "blank/void/scattering". Hanna retired after serving 2 terms. Using his own money, millionaire entrepreneur Martin Babinec ran as a candidate for a new political party, Upstate Jobs, and garnered 12.4% of the vote.

Republicans are afraid, very afraid. The Congressional Leadership Fund’s “day of action” in 17 House districts comes more than a year before the 2018 midterm elections. The effort, part of the super PAC’s plan to spend $100 million to influence House races, underscores the high stakes of upcoming House battles and marks an early push by Ryan’s allies to ensure that individual House races do not become a referendum on President Trump and his performance.
