Glens Falls: Following Tedra Cobb and Bill Owen’s factually inaccurate and desperate political attack on Congresswoman Elise Stefanik while our country is grieving, the Stefanik campaign released the below statement:

“We assume this is the same Bill Owens who never cracked 50 percent of the vote and publicly said Tedra Cobb is not a serious candidate? Their statement is factually inaccurate, as the President has not employed the Insurrection Act,”said the Stefanik campaign.“While the National Guard has state police powers and has been deployed at the direction of Governors, no active-duty military have been deployed in American cities. It’s disappointing yet unsurprising that while rioters and anarchists are killing police officers, Tedra Cobb is desperately seeking political endorsements and speaking out against law and order. Tedra Cobb has now made her position crystal clear: she opposes the National Guard and is siding with the rioters and looters rather than answering the call from law enforcement who need support. Meanwhile, the Cobb campaign is desperately calling Trump voters across the district asking for their support.

“Congresswoman Stefanik will continue working with our community leaders and local law enforcement to bring justice for George Floyd to ensure we continue to deliver important results like criminal justice reform.”
