It isn't a big surprise but it's a big announcement: Brooklyn Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries is officially launching his campaign for Congress in the 10th district this Sunday. The official invite is below.
Jeffries will officially be joining Councilman Charles Barron as a challenger to the man that currently holds the office, Congressman Ed Towns.
Some of the best reporting on Jeffries move towards running has been done by Reid Pillifant at Capital New York--definitely worth a review.
One of the most interesting things moving forward will be to see how redistricting--which will increase the size of the 10th by tens of thousands of voters--will affect the race. We'll be checking in on that as soon as the maps become available.
