NEW HARTFORD- Congresswoman Claudia Tenney called out her congressional opponent, Anthony Brindisi, for accepting contributions for his campaign from Nancy Pelosi. Tenney said, Brindisi doesn't support Pelosi and believes he shouldn't be accepting money.
Brindisi told NEWSChannel 2 he did accept the money, but said Tenney is trying to distract from her voting record in Washington. He also confirmed he does not support Nancy Pelosi. He said there needs to be change.
Tenney said Brindisi accepted a total of $14,000 from Pelosi. Tenney said she thinks Brindisi should give that monay back. "He should turn back the $14,000 to Nancy Pelosi, turn back the money and refuse to take the money to ads going out to the house majority PAC," said Tenney.
Brindisi responded with, "The true issue is an attempt by the Congresswoman to try and draw attention away from her disastrous record on things like healthcare."
The election is in six months.
