Today, the DCCC announced that Josh Riley has been added to its competitive ‘Red to Blue’ program, signaling that national Democrats are invested in providing New York’s 19th Congressional District and Riley, a top-tier candidate, the organizational and fundraising support needed to continue developing a strong campaign and keep NY-19 blue.
Josh has deep roots in Upstate New York, and is committed to addressing the real challenges facing working families today. In Congress, Josh will work to strengthen the region’s economy and ensure good-paying jobs are brought back to the district.
His opponent Marc Molinaro, fresh off of his expensive loss in the special election, is an anti-choice extremist and corrupt pay-to-pay politician who lines his and his donors’ pockets while consistently raising taxes on working families. He stands in stark contrast to Riley, who is running a grassroots campaign and is committed to lowering costs for hardworking families.
DCCC Spokesperson Nebeyatt Betre
“Josh Riley will be a champion for workers and families in NY-19, and has what it takes to keep this seat blue in this hypercompetitive cycle. Marc Molinaro and his toxic politics were resoundly rejected by voters here just last week, and he’ll be rejected again come November.”
