Former President Barack Obama Endorses Antonio Delgado

KINGSTON – Today, former President Barack Obama endorsed Antonio Delgado for Congress in New York’s 19th District. Antonio was the first New York Congressional candidate to earn Obama’s endorsement ahead of the upcoming midterm elections.  

“I’m proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates – leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent,” said President Obama. “I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity that’s broadly shared, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, and the rule of law.  But first, they need our votes – and I’m eager to make the case for why Democratic candidates deserve our votes this fall.”

“I am honored and truly humbled to receive former President Obama’s endorsement. The values he has dedicated his life to promoting—commitment to service, hard work, and ensuring equal rights for everyone—are the same values I am committed to promoting for the people of our region,” said Antonio Delgado. “I look forward to continuing to build on the momentum created by the grassroots support of our volunteers. It is when we all work together, as actively engaged citizens, that we can best improve our democracy.”
