Jim Himes—Democrat on a tightrope

This is a defining year for Himes. If he wins re-election, he’ll move up in seniority on the House Financial Services Committee, a key panel for a congressman representing a district that’s home to so many financial service executives it’s nicknamed “Wall Street on Long Island Sound.” Another electoral win will also cement Himes’ hold on a fickle district whose representation in Congress has swung between the parties since 1859.
