Fox News reported:
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Patrick Maloney conceded Wednesday in a historic House loss.
At a press conference, Maloney said he called Republican candidate Mike Lawler and congratulated him on a “good win” in New York’s 17th Congressional District.
Maloney’s loss is the first by a sitting House campaign committee chair since 1992, according to the Cook Political Report.
Maloney, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman and member of Congress since 2012, sought re-election this fall in hopes of maintaining his seat in New York’s 17th Congressional District against Lawler.
Lawler serves in the New York State Assembly and is a partner at Checkmate Strategies, a communications and campaign consulting firm.
