Antonio Delgado Is for a Public Option, Renewable Energy and Restoring People's Faith in Democracy

Meet the New Congress

Democrat Antonio Delgado unseated incumbent GOP Rep. John J. Faso on Election Day, and will soon become the first African-American to represent New York’s 19th District. He comes to Congress with a legal background, though his opponents honed in on his years as a music producer in Los Angeles during the campaign. Delgado wants to make health care a priority in the 116th Congress, as well as restoring citizens’ faith and trust in representative democracy.
