Liberal Congressman and former New York State Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi currently represents the 22nd Congressional district which went for President Trump by 15 points. Brindisi is the Freshman Democrat sitting in the district that went for Trump by the largest margin --- making this race one of the top races in the entire nation.
Brindisi voted for both articles of impeachment against President Trump --- a wildly unpopular decision. A recently published poll in New York 22nd by American Action Network found that 57% opposed Brindisi’s vote on impeachment, 62% believed the voters should decide President Trump’s future in the next election rather than have Congress impeach him and 66% believed that impeachment is hurting Congress’ ability to get more important things done.
Brindisi voted for single-payer socialized medicine in New York State six times, supported the Green New Deal for New York and was a co-sponsor of legislation that has legalized infanticide in New York State.
