ALBANY, NY (WAMC) — Former New York gubernatorial candidate, Marc Molinaro filed paperwork declaring his candidacy for the current 19th Congressional District seat Friday.
The 19th District is currently represented by Democrat Antonio Delgado (NY-19), who won a second term after defeating Republican Kyle Van De Water in 2020.
Van De Water was found dead in a confirmed suicide earlier this month. He killed himself shortly after withdrawing his candidacy for 2022.
The contours of the current 19th congressional district will be changing, with New York losing a House seat in the next round of redistricting.
