Tenney says primary experience has been positive

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Congressional candidate Claudia Tenney cast her vote at 2 p.m. Tuesday at St. George Church in New Hartford.

She said regardless of the outcome of her primary against U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, she has enjoyed the campaign and meeting voters.

"It's just been a real honor to run for this position," Tenney said. "Whether I win or lose, it's just been really interesting to have the conversations. I love talking about the Constitution and American principles and values. It's been a really great experience."

If Tenney wins, there is still a chance Hanna will be on the ballot in November on the Independence Party line. If Hanna wins, he'll likely be in for another term, as Tenney isn't on any other lines.

Tenney says if she loses Tuesday, she'd have a few days to decide whether to campaign for the assembly seat she currently has, or get enough signatures to run for Congress in November.
