Nov 07, 2012 11:00 am
Kyle Wind reports in the Daily Freeman incumbent U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, Republican of Kinderhook, defeated Democrat Julian Schreibman of Ulster County in the 19th Congressional District race, Tues., Nov. 6. Shortly before 1 a.m., Wednesday, Schreibman issued a statement conceding the race and wishing Gibson well:
I want to congratulate Congressman Chris Gibson on his victory tonight. ...While we have differed on many issues, he has served with honor during his time in Congress. It has been an incredible experience meeting so many wonderful people across the Hudson Valley and the Catskills, and I look forward to the next chapter in my life which, most immediately will mean spending more time with my wonderful family.

Gibson currently represents the 20th District, but parts of his district are to be combined with large swaths of the 22nd Congressional District, represented by retiring U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey, to form the 19th district. The newly drawn district includes all of Ulster, Dutchess, Greene and Columbia counties. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
