In the 22nd congressional district, Democrat Anthony Brindisi will be sworn in as the new representative. Absentee ballots were still being counted last week, but the race was finally called when it became clear that Brindisi had a lead too large for Republican Congresswoman Claudia Tenney to overcome. Congressman-elect Brindisi discussed the race finally coming to an end and, looking ahead, his priorities for Congress.

He also explains his stance on House speaker. He was one of 16 Democrats who signed a letter opposing Nancy Pelosi.
