Six Democrats and one unaffiliated candidate want the chance to unseat freshman New York Republican Congressman John Faso of the 19th District. 41-year-old Dutchess County resident Antonio Delgado, who moved back to the region last year, calls himself a Progressive Democrat. Thursday night, Delgado received the Dutchess County Democratic Committee endorsement. This is the fourth of WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne’s interviews with the candidates.
Antonio Delgado is one of six Democratic candidates looking to run against Faso in what is considered a swing district in the national spotlight. A seventh candidate is unaffiliated. The primary is June 26th.
