Better see a district

The state has posted a town-by-town map of the north country's congressional district and enrollment numbers for that district.
The map is posted below.
As for the enrollment numbers, it's good news for the GOP. The district got a lot more Republican — a 163,000 to 120,000 edge over Democrats in the previous district, to a 174,000 to 116,000 edge in the new district.
Most of those new Republicans, though, are on the eastern part of the district — home of Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh. And Mr. Owens can win in a GOP distirct, as he's proven twice (albeit with two Republicans on the ballot each time). Will he have an easier time connecting with those voters than Matt Doheny or Kellie Greene, Republican candidates who live on the other side of the Dacks, as some analysts have suggested? Only Nov. 6 will tell.
Mr. Owens will be in the city of Gloversville, in Fulton County, tomorrow. That's new territory for the two-term Democrat.
