New Hartford, N.Y.: House Republican Whip Steve Scalise announced today his endorsement of Claudia Tenney for Congress in NY-22 this cycle.

“I am excited to endorse my friend Claudia Tenney for Congress in 2020. Having had the privilege of working alongside Claudia last cycle, I witnessed just how much she genuinely cares for the people of NY-22,” said Scalise. “This district is her home; it’s where she spent her life, raised her Marine son as a single mom, and I know she’ll go to bat for each and every one of her constituents as their Congresswoman. Claudia has been a tireless advocate for families, veterans, farmers, and small business owners. Now, more than ever, Upstate New York needs a fighter like Claudia back in Congress, that is why I am proud to endorse her.”

“I am humbled to earn the endorsement of my friend House Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise in our run for Congress in NY-22,” Tenney said. “Upstate New York has always been my home. It is where I raised my son, and it is where our family business was founded 73 years ago. Just like everyone here, I have a stake in our future. It’s why I have chosen to stand up for our community in both Albany and Washington. Once again, we need a representative who will advocate for our values and deliver real results for our community, not someone who succumbs to resistance, accomplishing nothing and pedaling non-stop impeachment. I will continue to fight to save our community and our nation, every single day.”
