The ink is barely dry on the Tuesday night primary victories of Republican John Faso and Democrat Zephyr Teachout, but both sides are already trying to define the candidates in what will be a marquee congressional race this year.

In the moments after Faso declared victory over Andrew Heaney, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee unloaded its opposition research file in an email to reporters.

D-trip in particular outlined a case against Faso that includes his record on women’s issues (“Faso has aligned himself with the far-right wing of his Republican Party, which has consistently failed women and their families,” the committee wrote in its email), being an “Albany insider” and coming from the “Party of Trump” (In both style and substance, Faso is a far cry from being a Donald Trump Republican).

“John Faso is headed for another loss in this swing district because of his out-of-touch conservative record, scandal-ridden history, and the reality that he is sharing the ticket with Donald Trump,” the DCCC concluded.

That’s not to say Republicans won’t find a way to knock Teachout, a left-leaning Fordham Law School professor who moved to the district to run for the seat being vacated by Rep. Chris Gibson. Republicans are already likening the race to the contest between Gibson and Sean Eldridge in 2014, who moved to the Hudson Valley to unsuccessfully run for the district.

The Republican Congressional Leadership Fund in an email this morning called the race “A déjà vu nightmare for Dems?”

“New Yorkers didn’t fall for Democrats’ first carpetbagger; they won’t fall for the second,” the group wrote.

Still, like Faso is not Trump, Teachout is not like Eldridge: She already has a large and loyal liberal following after he run for governor two years ago and has sought to tap into the enthusiasm generated by Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign.

But at the same time, Teachout is being criticized for muddled answers on the movement to boycott, divest and sanction Israel as well as the SAFE Act.

“Zephry Teachout may have flip-flopped her way to victory in a Democrat primary,” said Congressional Leadership Fund spokeswoman Ruth Guerra, “but that will not fly in a general election.”
