As noted before, a couple things will be happening on August 23. First, there is the special election to determine who will finish out Antonio Delgado's term and represent NY19 in Congress for the rest of the year. The candidates in the special election are Pat Ryan, Ulster County Executive (Democrat), and Marc Molinaro, Dutchess County Executive (Republican).
Also, on August 23, there is the congressional primary to determine the candidates who will be on the ballot in November to represent the newly redrawn NY19 in Congress beginning in January 2023.

Also of relevance to this primary race, over the weekend, Assemblymember Didi Barrett endorsed Cheney with this statement:
"I am pleased to endorse Jamie Cheney for Congress because she will be a fresh and strong voice for our rural New York State communities in Washington," said Assemblymember Didi Barrett. "As a mom with school-age kids, a farmer, a small business owner, Jamie has the knowledge, experience and commitment to fight for the working people and upstate communities of CD 19 and we need her leadership now more than ever."
