Where in the world is Pat Ryan? Not NY-19

June 22, 2022

Democrats’ recruit for the NY-19 special election is spending his time… in NY-18?

The New York Post reports Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan appears to be gearing his campaign events toward his general election run in NY-18 rather than NY-19.

A New York Democratic Party insider suggested that Ryan “might be leveraging his candidacy in the special election to help fundraise to win a full term in the newly-drawn 18th District.”
