    FILE - In this Sept. 3, 2008, file photo, Chris Collins of Buffalo, N.Y., speaks at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn. New York state may provide the paradigm test this election of the staying power of Republicans who rode a tea party wave to a House majority two years ago _ and for Democrats striving to regain control. The big money involved in the contests reveals the GOP’s intent on preserving its foothold in the heavily Democratic state. The National Republican Congressional Committee said that it had reserved $5.25 million for TV time in New York, more than half to defend three freshmen. The rest is going to three districts held by Democrats, including the Buffalo area seat won by Kathy Hochul in a special election upset last year. Collins is challenging for her seat.
