Delgado Defeats Faso In NY-19

WAMC, Allison Dunne

Democrat Antonio Delgado defeated freshman Republican John Faso in New York’s 19th Congressional District. It was a hotly contested race in an 11-county swing district that had the nation’s attention.

Delgado delivered his victory speech at the Senate Garage in Kingston after Faso called to concede.

“This is a new day for New York 19,” said Delgado.

The new day comes after a race marked by controversial ads and campaign visits on both sides from high profile politicians.

“And no matter our political differences, I will always serve with integrity, accountability, responsibility and a whole lot of love,” Delgado said.

Delgado won a seven-way June primary to face Faso.
