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. Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district. (More from Freebase)
