Two more New York Democratic challenger candidates announced against congressional incumbents yesterday, both of who are educators. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx) will face teacher Andom Ghebreghiorgis and Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-Harrison) draws educationalist Lola Osoria. Both incumbents have other opponents as well. Mr. Ghebreghiorgis and Ms. Osoria each say they are inspired by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx).
Of the 20 New York House Democrats seeking re-election, ten, all from New York City or Long Island, already have primary opponents.
