Protect the U.S. House majority: Help win the NY-19 special election on August 23!

Defending this seat is necessary to protect the Democratic U.S. House majority this fall. Rep. Antonio Delgado was recently appointed Lieutenant Governor of New York, leaving NY-19 vacant. This seat is winnable for Democrats if we can turn out enough midterm voters.

This special election is a crucial test for Democrats. If Democratic candidate Pat Ryan can win the special election, he'll head into the general election in the fall with the power of incumbency. We cannot allow Republicans to gain this advantage heading into the midterms.
