AND ANOTHER ONE'S GONE...:

GOP Eyes Another Pickup in New York 29 (Emily Cadei, 3/04/10, CQ-Roll Call)

New York’s 29th district was always going to be a competitive race in November, given its long tradition of electing Republicans and the anti-Democratic trends coursing through the country. But freshman Rep. Eric Massa ’s surprising decision not to seek re-election has transformed what was going to be a straightforward race between Massa and former Corning Mayor Tom Reed (R) into an open-seat free-for-all.
