COOPERSTOWN – Despite a forceful presentation by her primary opponent that appeared to take her by surprise, Zephyr Teachout won the support of the Otsego County Democratic Committee a few minutes ago in her bid to replace retiring Republican Congressman Chris Gibson in the 19th District this fall.

Teachout, who reminded her audience she won 71 percent of Otsego County voters in her 2014 primary bid against Governor Cuomo, was endorsed by almost all the two dozen county committee members who gathered this evening in Village Board chambers at 22 Main.

Only three – County Rep. Andrew Stammel, D-Town of Oneonta, Springfield Town Supervisor Bill Elsey, and SUNY Oneonta poly-sci associate professor Brett Heindl – supported Will Yandik, a farmer, environmentalist, town board member and Princeton grad (he told of receiving a shotgun as a graduation present) who is vying with Teachout in the April 19 primary.

A fourth, former Oneonta mayor Kim Muller, abstained.
