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.

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. Much of this district is now the 18th District, while the current 19th is essentially the successor of the former 20th District.

Sitting 19th district representative Nan Hayworth opted to follow most of her constituents into the new 18th, but was defeated by Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton.[3] Most of the old 19th district is now part of the 18th district.[4] Meanwhile, sitting 20th district representative Chris Gibson ran for re-election in the new 19th and won. On January 5, 2015, per his pledge when first elected not to serve more than four terms, Gibson announced that he would not run for re-election in 2016.[5]

In 2016, Democrat Zephyr Teachout was defeated by Republican John Faso in the November 8 election.[6] In 2018, Faso was defeated after only one term by Democrat Antonio Delgado.
