Democratic Rep. Max Rose just conceded to Republican Nicole Malliotakis in New York’s 11th Congressional District, around the same time ABC News projected the race for the GOP challenger. The vote count isn’t finished, but Malliotakis currently leads by 16 points in the Staten Island-based district. Far and away the most Republican-leaning district in New York City — Trump won here by 10 points in 2016 — Rose pulled an upset to win it in 2018 but was unable to win reelection. This marks the 10th seat that Republicans have flipped so far (nine Democratic districts and one Libertarian seat), and Malliotakis is the eighth Republican woman to win a Democratic-held seat.
