Senator Schumer Endorses Rep. Antonio Delgado for Re-Election

RHINEBECK, NY — Today, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) endorsed Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) for re-election.

“Our upstate New York communities have a powerful advocate in Rep. Antonio Delgado. Whether it’s fighting to help our small farms stay afloat through his Family Farmer Relief Act, or achieving loan relief for small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rep. Delgado has advanced important priorities through the House and Senate to get real results for our region. I am proud to endorse his re-election, and I look forward to our continued work together in support of our shared goals, including increasing federal investments in rural areas, expanding broadband infrastructure, and lowering health care costs,” said Senator Chuck Schumer.

“Throughout my first term, I have partnered with Senator Schumer to advance our upstate priorities through both chambers of Congress and this work has brought about critically important results for our small businesses and family farms. I am honored to once again have his support and know that there is so much more to be done at the federal level to make sure our communities in upstate New York have the resources they need to recover and rebuild from COVID-19,” said Rep. Antonio Delgado.

Over the last two years, Senator Schumer and Rep. Delgado have worked together to introduce bicameral priorities including a legislative package to close loopholes in limo safety legislation, and the bipartisan Direct Support for Communities Act, which would ensure that every single locality, regardless of size, can access federal COVID-19 relief.
