Antonio Delgado Flips NY-19, Becoming the District’s First Latinx Representative
Delgado ran a progressive campaign, calling for education reform, equal pay for women, bringing jobs to the district, and environmental protections to combat climate change. Above all, his top priority has been healthcare, specifically an opt-in option for universal affordable healthcare and support for women’s right to choose. Healthcare was the top voting issue in the district, with the majority of constituents (29%) citing it as the most important factor in determining their vote, according to a
Monmouth University poll.
