In 2016, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Manhattan) was one of several New York House members to repel what turned out to be a serious nomination challenge. This year, the intra-party political contests are again rising to the surface. Yesterday, attorney and MeToo organization activist Erica Vladimer (D) announced that she will challenge Rep. Maloney joining comedy show producer Lauren Ashcraft as official candidates.
2018 challenger Suraj Patel is another potential candidate. So is former White House aide Dawn Smalls. In any event, Rep. Maloney is favored for re-nomination, but she will have to wage an active campaign.
