The 42-year-old Neal portrayed Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak on “Law and Order: SVU.”

Now she’s launching her active campaign Wednesday for the 19th Congressional District. She has lived there for four years and announced her independent candidacy in February.

First-term incumbent Rep. John Faso is one of six Republican House members targeted in New York by the Democratic Party.
