Former U.S. Secretary of the Army John McHugh on Thursday issued a statement regarding his support for re-election of U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro.

“Having appeared before Congresswoman Stefanik’s Armed Services Committee in my role as Secretary of the Army, I was continuously impressed with her command of the issues and dedication to the men and women of the United States military,” said McHugh, a Republican who previously represented the Watertown and Plattsburgh areas in Congress.”

“Her tireless advocacy for Fort Drum, farmers and a better economy for our region convinced me to financially support her re-election for Congress.”

Stefanik is running for re-election in the 21st Congressional District against Democrat Mike Derrick, a retired Army colonel from Peru, in Clinton County, and Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello, a bread company owner and political activist from Hudson Falls.
