The Farm Bureau of New York this evening is hosting the five candidates, two Democrats and three Republicans, who will be competing in the June 28 primary for their parties’ nominations to run for the 19th Congressional District seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook. After a social hour in the Oneonta High School auditorium, the five spoke in the Belden Auditorium. From left are Democrat Will Yandik, Livingston Town Board member, Ulster County; Republican Bob Bishop, agribusinessman, Hamden, Delaware County; Republican John Faso, Kinderhook, former Assembly Republican leader who ran against Eliot Spitzer for governor in 2006; Democrat Zephyr Teachout, the Fordham law professor who challenged Cuomo in the 2014 Democratic primary, and Republican Andrew Heaney, Dutchess County, who has been expanding a family-run oil company. Before the debate, candidates had time to meet and greet local voters at an ice-cream social, sponsored by Stewart’s Ice Cream. Tonight also marked the first time that all five had been in the same room. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
