The Delgado for Congress campaign released a new digital ad this morning, taking voters down memory lane with Antonio Delgado, the Democrat running to unseat freshman Republican John Faso for New York’s 19th congressional district.

The video is narrated by Delgado, beginning:

“I live in Rhinebeck, but my story beings in Schenectady. We lived here in a rented apartment, working class. Everything we had we earned. The rules were simple: go to church, listen to your teachers, stay out of trouble.”

He says through hard work and employment at General Electric, his parents elevated the family from working to middle class, eventually moving from a rented apartment to building their own home. Delgado links his commitment to family values, fighting for affordable healthcare and good jobs to this upbringing, “The values my parents instilled in me growing up here are the same values that drive me to run for Congress — honesty, hard work and service. I believe that when you make a promise, you keep it.”

“My story is grounded in the set of values that I was raised on. Here’s the truth: for too long our leaders in Washington have been putting politics over people, have been putting dollars over democracy.”

Delgado is an attorney with degrees from Colgate University and Harvard Law School. This is his first bid for public office.
