United States House of Representatives, New York District 19 is located in New York's Hudson Valley and Catskills regions. District 19 lies north of the New York City metropolitan area and mostly south of Albany. It is currently represented by Republican Chris Gibson.

After redistricting in 2012, the 19th district comprises all of Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan, and Ulster counties, and parts of Broome, Dutchess, Montgomery, and Rensselaer counties. President Obama won the new district by 6.2% in 2012. The current 19th District is largely a merger between the former 20th and 22nd Congressional Districts.

The site of the Woodstock music festival is located in this district.

From 2003 to 2013, the 19th was composed of parts of Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, and Westchester Counties, in addition to the entirety of Putnam County.

In 2012, sitting 19th district representative Nan Hayworth ran in the new 18th district against Democrat and former advisor to President Bill Clinton Sean Patrick Maloney. Maloney defeated Hayworth and was seated in the new 18th.[1] Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district.[2]

2010 election cycle

John Hall faced no primary challenge. Nan Hayworth won the Republican primary.[3] Neil Di Carlo, a pro-life candidate who lost the primary, refused to endorse Hayworth and suggested that his supporters "write in a candidate of your choice".[4]

The district was considered to be a toss-up race in the election.[5] Until 2006, the 19th Congressional District was considered a reliably Republican district and the National Republican Congressional Committee had mentioned that Hall's seat was one they hoped to take during the 2010 election cycle.[6] It has a Cook Partisan Voting Index of R+3,[7] although in more recent elections Democratic candidates had seen their rate of success increase. Polls from mid-October 2010 showed Republican Hayworth leading within the margin of error, and the race was considered to be a statistical dead heat. On November 2, 2010, Hayworth defeated Hall in the general election by a margin of 53% to 47%.
