NEW HARTFORD- Congresswoman Claudia Tenney announced she will be running for re-election in 2018. On Saturday Tenney hosted a rally for her supporters at her hometown restaurant Cavallo’s.

During the rally, she addressed her supporters with what her campaign will entail. Her main focal points include second amendment gun laws, reviving local farms, and supporting the mental health issue.

“We continue to work with veterans every day,” said Tenney. “They continue to have issues that are just unfair on how they have to wait to receive health care.”

The congresswoman also addresses her accolades since she has been in office. They include lowering the unemployment to record lows and reforming the tax plan.

"First of all, we are going to continue the progress that we have already made on the tax plan,” said Tenney. “The big issue is to make the tax reform permanent and get some bipartisan support from the Democrats.”

Tenney’s opponent Anthony Brindisi said in a statement, “We are looking forward to a spirited debate on who the best candidate will be to protect middle-class families, their health insurance and their Social Security and Medicare.”

After the rally, the media was able to ask the congresswoman some questions. Before media started to ask questions Tenney’s campaign manager made it clear that any questions asked must be on topic. A reporter from Syracuse questioned Tenney on her comments which were made last week on an Albany radio show pertaining to mass shootings. That video is attached.
