New York's 19th congressional district is located in New York's Catskills and mid-Hudson Valley regions. District 19 lies partially in the northernmost region of the New York metropolitan area and mostly south of Albany. It is currently represented by Democrat Antonio Delgado.
After redistricting in 2012, the 19th district comprises all of Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan, and Ulster counties, and parts of Broome, Dutchess, Montgomery, and Rensselaer counties. The 19th district borders Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut to the east, and Pennsylvania to the southwest. Democratic President Barack Obama won the new district by 6.2% in 2012, while Republican Donald Trump won the district by 6.8% in 2016.
From 2003 to 2013, the 19th was composed of parts of Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, and Westchester Counties, in addition to the entirety of Putnam County. Much of this district is now the 18th District, while the current 19th is essentially a merger of the former 20th District and 22nd District.
Incumbent 19th district representative Nan Hayworth opted to follow most of her constituents into the new 18th, but was defeated by Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton. Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district. Meanwhile, incumbent 20th district representative Chris Gibson ran for re-election in the new 19th and won. On January 5, 2015, per his pledge when first elected not to serve more than four terms, Gibson announced that he would not run for re-election in 2016.
