U.S. House and Senate ratings from Congressional Quarterly Roll Call and Inside Elections show some changes since last election cycle. In New York, one of the most closely watched House districts – the 19th — has been newly assessed. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with the Inside Elections publisher about the 2020 race in the sprawling 11-county district in the first part of a two-part interview.
Democrat Antonio Delgado defeated first-term Republican John Faso in 2018 in the 19th Congressional District. Nathan Gonzales is editor and publisher of Inside Elections, which provides nonpartisan analysis of campaigns for Senate, House, governor and president. With less than a year until Election Day, he gives a slight edge to Delgado, rating New York-19 “tilt Democratic.”
