Current Representative John Faso (RKinderhook)
Cook PVI R+2[1]

United States House of Representatives, New York District 19 is located in New York's Hudson Valley and Catskills regions. District 19 lies north of the New York City metropolitan area and mostly south of Albany. It is currently represented by Republican John Faso.

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. President Obama won the new district by 6.2% in 2012. The current 19th District is largely a merger between the former 20th and 22nd Congressional Districts.

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.

In 2012, sitting 19th district representative Nan Hayworth ran in the new 18th district against Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton. Maloney defeated Hayworth and was seated in the new 18th.[2] Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district.[3] Meanwhile, sitting 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.[4]

In 2016, Democrat Zephyr Teachout was defeated by Republican John Faso in the November 8 election.[5]

A social media study conducted by marketing firm Kingston Creative found that in mid-2017, Bernie Sanders was 4x as popular as Hillary Clinton among independent voters and 3x as popular as Hillary Clinton among Democrats who voted in NY-19's general election in 2016. [6]
