House Majority PAC Statement On NY-19 Special Election Results

August 24, 2022

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC Executive Director Abby Curran Horrell issued the following statement after last night’s special election in New York’s 19th Congressional District: 

“House Majority PAC congratulates Congressman-Elect Pat Ryan on his victory in the special election in New York’s 19th Congressional District. 

“Last night’s results show that abortion continues to be a mobilizing issue for Americans across the country, and that they refuse to accept Republican attempts to control their bodies, their rights, and Congress.

“And after spending millions of dollars in NY-19, House Republicans and Congressional Leadership Fund are facing a rude awakening this morning. The harsh reality is that House Republicans are grossly out-of-touch with the American people, their attempt to implement a nationwide abortion ban is wildly unpopular, and they are being rejected at the polls due to their extremist polices. 

“The stakes of defending our Democratic House majority have never been higher and come November, Democrats will win.”
