NY Has a New Lieutenant Governor and he’s from the Capital Region
Governor Hochul has been in a tough spot after her Lieutenant Governor, Brian Benjamin, was arrested on charges related to a campaign finance scheme in connection to a real estate mogul.
Benjamin resigned his position as Lieutenant Governor shortly after his indictment back on April 12.
Governor Hochul announced Benjamin's replacement in a tweet Tuesday morning:
Congressman Antonio Delgado is from Schenectady and currently serves as the representative for New York's 19th district, which covers the Catskills and parts of the Capital Region and Hudson Valley.
