This is the seventh in a series of race rundowns designed to give subscribers a quick snapshot of what's happening in each district in 2018.

NY-01: Lee Zeldin (R) - Eastern Long Island: Brookhaven, Smithtown
Likely Republican. Zeldin is a true Trump Republican in a district that Trump carried by 12 points, but traditionally this has been a swing district. Democrats face a dilemma between nominating wealthy lending executive Perry Gershon, who can self-fund and ended 2017 with $812,000, or Suffolk County Legislator Kate Browning, whose profile as a former school bus driver may better fit the seat. Either way, it's potentially competitive.
NY-02: Peter King (R) - South Shore Long Island: Islip, Babylon Solid Republican. King's willingness to criticize his own party on news shows has made him highly popular back home: in 2016, he won reelection by 25 points as President Trump won
