Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-New Hartford), who currently represents New York’s 22nd district in Congress, announced in January that she would run for the newly redrawn 23rd district seat. But those maps were thrown out and redrawn by a court-appointed special master. Now, as of this week, Tenney is running in the new 24th district. 

Grant Reeher, professor of political science, says since the maps took so long to redraw and finalize, candidates and voters are at a disadvantage this year. "Now we have a lot of confusion, and time is running out,” says Reeher. “We're already in the second half of May, and you've got to conduct two sets of primaries, for each party, and have a general election."
