25th Congressional District

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (D)

has held her seat in Congress for almost three decades, after first being elected in 1987.

Three other candidates remain in the race, including her 2014 opponent.

Though Slaughter is a long-time member of Congress, her seat was a toss-up in the last election. She ultimately won by less than 1,000 votes.

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (D) Slaughter sneaked past her Republican opponent in 2014 after spending almost three decades in Congress. Recently she has expressed support for the Iran nuclear deal, but was one of 47 Democrats to vote for stronger restrictions on taking in Syrian refugees.
