It comes after redistricting swapped out swing areas in southern Brooklyn with more progressive neighborhoods.

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican running for governor, would see his eastern Long Island district stretched, too, to include Democratic suburbs closer to New York City.

Wednesday, the state legislature approved the new congressional maps, which give Democrats advantages in a total of 22 of 26 districts.

Of the eight Republicans holding seats, Democrats could pick up at least three.

Lawsuits over the new maps are likely.
