The Republican Party has "yet to find a single 2018 candidate for any of New York's statewide offices," New York Magazine reports.

Already, two potential challengers to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo have backed out, and in the U.S. Senate race, Kirsten Gillibrand remains unopposed, according to the magazine. As well, there are no declared candidates for state attorney general or comptroller.

"Given the national mood (Democrats currently lead the 2018 generic congressional ballot by double digits), and the strength of the state's Democratic incumbents, the GOP has little chance of winning a statewide race in New York this fall, whether they run solid candidates or not," New York's Eric Levitz writes.

"But in statewide races, winning isn't (always) everything: When a party fails to mount competent candidates for long-shot gubernatorial and Senate races, it can doom more competitive candidates down-ballot.

"Without statewide standard-bearers investing money and volunteers into turning out Republican voters next fall, the GOP's New York House delegation could be done for."
