New Hartford, N.Y.- The Herkimer County GOP Committee announced their endorsement for Claudia Tenney’s bid for Congress in NY-22 over other Republican candidates in the race. The Herkimer County GOP Committee is the third GOP Committee to hold an endorsement vote in NY-22; all previous committees voted to endorse Tenney as well.

“The Herkimer County GOP Committee enthusiastically endorses Claudia Tenney’s race for Congress this cycle. Claudia by far is the only candidate in the race who can take on and beat Anthony Brindisi this year,” said Chairwoman Sylvia Rowan. “Over the years, Claudia has proven to be a fierce advocate and fighter for our region and last Congress she helped to deliver historic results to Upstate New York. We need her back in Congress to stand up to Nancy Pelosi and continue to work with President Trump. Brindisi has proven he serves Pelosi and the left-wing of his party over his district in voting to impeach President Trump, and Claudia Tenney is the right person to replace him. We are excited to work with Claudia this year and win big in November.’’

Chairwoman Sylvia Rowan also personally endorses Claudia Tenney adding, “Throughout the time I have known her, Claudia Tenney has always been a dedicated public servant and proven conservative stalwart for the people of Upstate New York. She was, and will be again, an excellent Congresswoman for the 22nd District.”

“I am excited to announce the endorsement of the Herkimer County GOP Committee. The support of the Herkimer County GOP Committee helps tremendously in unifying our effort to defeat Anthony Brindisi in November and I am grateful for their support,” Tenney said.” “Anthony Brindisi has voted with Nancy Pelosi over 90% of the time in Congress and he has voted to impeach the President three times. All while delivering no results for our communities. Despite false promises and empty rhetoric, Anthony Brindisi has gone to Washington and become Washington. He has fallen right in line with Nancy Pelosi and the far-left. Our community deserves better and that is why I am running for Congress – to fight for our home and deliver results for our region once again.”
