Rachel Bade at Politico reports that national political interests continue to work on New York's 19th Congressional District race.

The PAC is funded by casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, and already has 34 offices running mini-campaigns for vulnerable Republicans across the country. It means local commercial broadcasters will be airing many political ads from now until November, and registered voters should expect many calls, as Faso's re-election campaign will be among the most-watched in the country. Indeed, this week Rolling Stone political journalist Matt Taibbi launched the first of a series of reports focusing on the 19th Congressional District election. Read the full story at Politico.
