UTICA, N.Y. – New York State Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy officially endorsed Claudia Tenney for Congress on Friday, saying she has his “full support.”
“Claudia has a proven track record of delivering results and being an effective champion for President Trump’s successful agenda,” said Langworthy. “With her as our nominee, we are going to take this seat back and get one step closer to regaining a strong Republican majority in Congress.”
Tenney was in Utica Friday touring Metal Solutions, a company that produces heating and cooling components, but has started manufacturing ultraviolet lighting units during the coronavirus pandemic. These units are used for sanitation purposes.
“I would love to have this company featured as a Made in America company, because of the kind of work that they’re doing, and how useful and relevant the products they’re making here now – would be terrific, I’d love to be able to advocate for them,” said Tenney. “And any other companies that we have in our region who are focusing on Made in America, making important products and services here, so that we’re not dependent on China.”
Tenney is facing George Phillips of Broome County in the Republican primary. The winning candidate will challenge incumbent Congressman Anthony Brindisi in November.
