NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – Claudia Tenney has received an endorsement from neighboring Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, R-21.
Tenney is running for representative of the 22nd Congressional district against incumbent Rep. Anthony Brindisi.
“I am excited to endorse Claudia Tenney for Congress this cycle,” Stefanik said. “Upstate New York needs someone who will go to Washington and deliver real results for NY-22, someone who will work to further President Trump’s agenda, not obstruct it. I know Claudia will be that person and look forward to having her in Congress once again.”
Tenney also received an endorsement from Stefanik’s Elevate PAC, a political group that aims to increase the number of Republican women in Congress.
“Elise has been the leading voice in working to get more Republican women elected to Congress,” Tenney said. “I had the honor of working alongside Elise last cycle in Congress and together we were able to help deliver real results to upstate communities. I am grateful for her support and I am looking forward to re-joining her next Congress and getting back to work for our upstate New York communities.”
Tenney was also endorsed by Congressman Steve Scalise in December.
She will run against Franklin Sager and George Phillips in the Republican primary.
