The Daily Gazette: Humble roots to the ‘big tent’ — Schenectady native Delgado has his eyes on Congress
Wading through scores of potential voters in 90-degree heat at the Fourth of July festival in Oneonta, it took Antonio Delgado over an hour just to make it 50 yards past the gate. As a rookie campaigner running for Congress, perhaps it would have made more sense for the 41-year-old Schenectady native to have made a quick stump speech before heading off to the next event. It was just one of several campaign stops that day. But Delgado was in no rush.
