"Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. … The richest: New York’s 12th Congressional District, which includes Manhattan’s Upper East Side … Democrat Carolyn Maloney is in her 11th term representing the district. … Democratic House districts have an average per-capita income of $27,893. That’s about $1,000 higher than the average income in Republican districts.
