Rematch in the 22nd district? Tenney plans to challenge Brindisi

With a video that appears more of a mini biopic than a campaign video, former 22nd district Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, a Republican, announced on Tuesday her intention to try and reclaim that seat from Democrat Congressman Anthony Brindisi, who defeated her in 2018.

With a video that appears more of a mini biopic than a campaign video, former 22nd district Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, a Republican, announced on Tuesday her intention to try and reclaim that seat from Democrat Congressman Anthony Brindisi, who defeated her in 2018.

"I think a lot of mistakes were made in my campaign; some things I knew about, some things I didn't know about. I take full responsibility for it nonetheless and I think with a whole new team, I think we can provide a really good representation right now in Washington," says Tenney.

"A rematch is not set in stone yet," said Congressman Anthony Brindisi, who on Tuesday elected to talk about doing his job, not keeping his job . "We have a long time til the election. A year out from next year. And I'm gonna focus on doing the job the people have elected me to do. We have a lot of work happening in Washington right now, trying to lower the cost of prescription drugs. We have to get a trade deal adopted."

Tenney joins a list of three other Republican candidates: Broome County District Attorney, Steve Cornwell, and Franklin Sager and George Phillips-both teachers in Broome County.

The two had a costly, intense race in 2018, with PACs and SuperPACs investing millions in advertising. The Cook Political report, an independent, non-partisan group that analyzes house races, is classifying this race as a toss-up.
