Local Congressman Antonio Delgado was sworn in Wednesday as lieutenant governor.

Delgado will resign as congressman, so he can run for statewide office.

Delgado says he looks forward to partnering with Gov. Hochul.

Delgado becomes lieutenant governor more than a month after the arrest of former Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin. Hochul says a special election for Delgado’s congressional seat will take place August 23.
