But when all you ever get to wear is pajamas and you live under a cloud of doubt about your future and your prognosis — like if you’re facing pediatric cancer — the idea of the simple wardrobe loses a lot of its luster.

Maffei, a Democrat, lost to Republican challenger John Katko, a former U.S. Attorney, by a margin of 73,317 votes to 55,268. Katko said he wasn’t necessarily surprised by the victory. “We were going door-to-door for the last couple of weeks of the campaign … and we were getting a pretty good response,” he said. “I just felt the momentum, so I wasn’t surprised that we won.”
