NEW HARTFORD – Former and would-be Congresswoman Claudia Tenney today announced her endorsement by President Trump in her campaign against U.S. Anthony Brindisi, D-22st, who voted for Trump’s impeachment. The 22nd District is directly north of the 19th, which includes Otsego County.
The president tweeted: “Claudia Tenney is a fantastic candidate running in New York, where she was a Great member of Congress. She is Strong on Crime, Borders, Cutting Taxes, your #2A, and she Loves our Military and Vets. Claudia has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Tenney said she’s “humbled and honored” by Trump’s support. “As a single mother and small business owner who is a native of Upstate New York,” she said, “my number one priority is working with the President to continue growing our strong economy and delivering results for the hardworking men and women of our district.”
