ONEONTA – 19th District Republican Congressional candidate Tony German said his prospective opponent, freshman incumbent Antonio Delgado, joined “the AOC wing of the Democratic Party” by coming out yesterday in favor of President Trump’s impeachment.
“With no impeachment hearings, investigations, or findings, Congressman Delgado is prepared to remove an elected President from office,” said German, retired commander of the New York State National Guard. “This is a far cry from the bipartisan and unifying message we heard in the Congressman slick campaign commercials less than two years ago.”
ONEONTA – After 36 years in the New York State National Guard, retiring Feb. 2 at adjutant general, the top commander, Tony German’s career was guided by a set of values: Integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.
That’s the code of the U.S. Air Force, he explained.
“I’m not going to change now,” he said Sunday, Aug. 18, in an interview at his Cemetery Hill home as he contemplates his latest challenge: Running for the Republican nomination for 19th District congressman. If he faces a GOP primary and wins next June, he’ll face the Democratic freshman, U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado on Nov. 3, 2010.
