It’s not a good look for the DCCC and national Democrats when establishment poster boy Steve Israel chooses to call it quits.  According to Newsday, Steve Israel is quitting Congress to…wait for it….write a book.

Well then, here’s our idea for a title:

DEAR NANCY: A NOTE TO THE LIBERAL LADY FROM CALIFORNIA WHO MADE ME UNELECTABLE IN MY MODERATE DISTRICT”

According to the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, NY-03 has been moved from “Safe D to Toss-up.”

NRCC Comment:  “Steve Israel was in charge of electing House Democrats for years and even he sees the writing on the wall for 2016.  The extremists of his party are slowly making House Democrats extinct.  We fully expect this seat to be a top pickup opportunity for Republicans in November.” –NRCC Spokesman Chris Pack
