NewsChannel 13, WAMC partner in 19th Congressional District debate
October 22, 2018 07:30 PM
Too close to call. That's the result of a new poll on the race for the 19th Congressional District. The Siena poll shows incumbent Republican John Faso, with a one-point lead over Democrat Antonio Delgado. Six percent goes to the other candidates, Steve Greenfield and Diane Neal.
Here's the key: Seven percent of voters say they're still undecided.
This latest poll comes as all four candidates squared off in a debate on Monday in Albany. NewsChannel 13’s Jim Kambrich was among those posing questions.
Similar to last week, Faso and Delgado maintained their personal attacks on one another, beginning with the very first question.
Neal and Greenfield held their own, acknowledging they aren't the stereotypical congressional candidates and saying that's why they should be voted in.
Delgado ran on his support for working families, saying there need to be new voices in government and not career politicians.
Faso is running on his record. He's served in Congress since being elected in 2016. He says he's one of the most bipartisan members of the House.
Greenfield says his focus will be on concerns of war and peace and poverty -- and a need for better wages for the working public.
Neal said she is not a lawyer and not a politician. She's a resident, a friend and a neighbor and wants to advocate for others in her district.
