New York is a big state so we are going to focus our energy on NY-19 currently held by freshman Republican John Faso. Why NY-19?
Although Faso won his race by 8 points (and Trump won the district by 7 points), he is considered a vulnerable Republican. His race is rated a toss-up by the Cook Political Report. Faso receives an A+ rating from the NRA and voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. During and after the healthcare vote, he refused to meet with his constituents.
+ NY GOAL 1: GET OUT THE VOTE
Lean Left Vermont is working with NY19Votes which serves as an umbrella organization for local groups. We are helping out our fellow activists at NY19Votes by phoning voters in Faso’s district to identify issues, recruit volunteers, and create a better contact list for Democratic Candidate Antonio Delgado. Help us flip John Faso right out of his seat!

His top priorities for Congress are universal health care, protecting a woman's right to choice, creating a tax code that works for the middle class and working people, and protecting and expanding environmental protections.
