An independent advocate for upstate New York
Rep. Anthony Brindisi won an upset victory in 2018, flipping a New York district that Donald Trump won two years prior by 15.5 points. As a member of the New York State Assembly since 2011 before running for Congress, Brindisi championed career and technical education. In Congress, he serves on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and House Agriculture Committee.
A voice for campaign finance reform in Congress
Brindisi does not accept corporate PAC money, and is fighting to change the way Washington works. He believes strongly that corporate special interests and dark money pose a threat to a functioning democracy and stand in the way of reforms that can help move our country forward. He co-sponsored the For the People Act, a sweeping reform package to clean up American democracy.
A critical re-election campaign
Of all the seats that flipped in the 2018 midterm elections, Trump won NY-22 by the biggest margin in 2016. There are 30,000 more registered Republicans in the district than Democrats. National Republicans have made it one of their top targets in the upcoming election year. ECU is proud to support Congressman Brindisi’s re-election campaign.
