Delgado's campaign has $5 million

Nick Reisman reports at New York State of Politics that Rep. Antonio Delgado faces his toughest election yet in 2022. Typically, U.S. House seats held by the same party as the sitting president can be in danger in a non-presidential election year, and by all accounts, New York's 19th Congressional District is a swing district. Plus, redistricting has yet to determine what the district could be, as more Republicans, or more Democrats, might be added or subtracted depending on where the lines are drawn. And Delgado has a formidable Republican candidate in Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro. The good news? Delgado's campaign on Oct. 4 reported having more than $5 million in cash on hand. Delgado beat incumbent John Faso in 2018, during the Democratic blue wave, and then in 2020 was helped with President Joe Biden at the top of the Democratic ticket. “Congressman Delgado has passed 12 bills into law, held 63 town halls, secured FEMA funding in the wake of Hurricane Ida, and delivered over $400 million in direct support for our counties, towns, and villages,” said Delgado for Congress Campaign Manager Christian Perkins. “We are incredibly grateful for all the community support for our campaign.” Read more about this story at New York State of Politics.
