The United Mine Workers of America has endorsed Congresswoman Claudia Tenney for re-election in November.

Tenney was voted into the 22nd Congressional District seat in 2016, and she’s running for re-election in November against her Democratic opponent state Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.

Last month Tenney was endorsed by UMWA Local 717, a chapter of UMWA that represents employees at Remington Arms in Ilion.

"I am honored to be endorsed by United Mine Workers of America," Tenney said in a news release. "This union represents thousands of hardworking men and women across the country, including employees at Remington Arms in Ilion, New York. Remington Arms is a staple in our community and I will continue to stand with their dedicated employees."
