Former Rep. Mi­chael McMa­hon (D) is “quietly float­ing him­self as a can­did­ate for a po­ten­tial spe­cial elec­tion” if Rep. Mi­chael Grimm (R) resigns. McMa­hon has de­clined to say wheth­er he plans to run Grimm’s seat , but he spoke ex­tens­ively at a meet­ing of the Bay Ridge Demo­crats about former New York City Coun­cil­man Domen­ic Rec­chia’s (D) loss to Grimm.

“The prob­lem is that people did not vote,” he said. “You have a dis­trict that has a red DNA like this dis­trict has, it’s not in­sur­mount­able, it can be done, but its nat­ur­al tend­ency is to vote Re­pub­lic­an.” (New York Ob­serv­er)
