Path To Victory

Steven is the perfect candidate for NY-24.

In years past, the Democrats have nominated candidates who could not bridge the gap between being a true progressive in the primary and appealing to moderate swing voters in the general. Steven Holden will not have this problem. Steven is a bold progressive who is not apologetic about his positions on social and racial justice, abortion, anti-Trumpism, a middle-class economy, and the environment.

Steven is also a proud military veteran and an expert in both fiscal and foreign policy, issue areas Republicans love to promote in a general election. Steven can flank John Katko on the left and the right and will create a strong coalition of progressives, Democrats, moderates, and anti-Trump Republicans. This is something that no Democratic candidate for Congress in NY-24 has ever been able to do before.

The District

NY-24 is pivotal to the control of Congress. U.S. Rep. John Katko is a vulnerable member of Congress and is one of a handful of Republicans who was re-elected in a district President Joe Biden carried. Since 2008, the district has swung back and forth between Democratic and Republican Party control. At the presidential level, the district is solidly blue.
