Mid-Hudson News reports that Rep. Antonio Delgado will run for re-election in November. The first-term Democrat from Rhinebeck has yet to make a formal announcement, but said Feb. 26 that, “My focus is just making sure that I keep doing the work. When I am home I am talking about the issues. I’m learning from the constituents. I’m focusing on the needs on the ground and I have to be relentless in that regard, whether it’s broadband, whether it’s PFAS contamination, whether it’s helping develop our workforce, whether it’s tackling climate change." Delgado, who beat incumbent Republican John Faso in 2018, has several announced opponents. Republican Millbrook attorney Kyle Van De Water and Republican fashion designer Ola Hawatmeh are running in a primary election later this spring, and Green Party candidate Steve Greenfield, from New Paltz, is also running for the 19th Congressional District seat.
