Incumbent Congressman Antonio Delgado, will serve the 19th district for another term, according to the Associated Press.

The AP reports Delgado won with 52% of the vote, while Republican Kyle Van De Water took 46%.

Delgado was leading by more than 7,000 votes on Election Day. With absentee ballots included, Delgado had 156,791 votes to Van De Water’s 139,221.

"With the race now officially called, I am incredibly humbled by the opportunity to once again serve every community in NY-19 and thank Mr. Van De Water for his concession call and his spirited campaign focused on the issues," said Delgado. "The work continues, as I have already met this month with all four of my bipartisan, locally-based advisory committees focusing on small businesses, health care, agriculture, and our veterans as well as launched a district-wide priorities survey to hear from everyone all across NY-19 about what they're most interested in seeing Congress take on as we move forward."

Van De Water released the following statement on Thursday, Nov. 19:

"I just called Congressman Delgado to congratulate him on winning a second term to the House of Representatives. 

"While it is close, it has become clear that when all of the legal votes are counted, we will come up just a bit short.

"I am so incredibly proud of the campaign we ran and truly thankful for the tremendous support we have received over these past few months.

"NY-19 is my home. I was born here, I was raised here, and this is where I am raising my children. I have always fought for her and will always continue to do so. 

"Congratulations to Rep. Delgado on his victory in this hard-fought campaign. We live in divisive times and I am proud of the fact that we kept the campaign and debates civil and focused on the issues. I am looking forward to the rematch in 2022."

The 19th District includes all of Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster counties, as well as parts of Broome, Dutchess, Montgomery and Rensselaer counties.
