Today, Assemblyman Chris Tague, who serves as both Assemblyman for New York’s 102nd Assembly District and Chairman of the Schoharie County Republican Party, announced his endorsement of Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s re-election campaign for New York’s 21st Congressional District. Following the passage of new Congressional district lines by the New York State Legislature, Schoharie County will now be part of the 21st district.

Assemblyman Tague said Congresswoman Stefanik is a “warrior” who will be a strong voice for Schoharie County families:

“If there was any silver lining in last week’s redistricting process, it’s that the residents of Schoharie County will be picking up Elise Stefanik to represent them in Congress,” said Assemblyman Tague. “Schoharie County is used to having strong leadership in Congress, having been represented by key figures such as Don Mitchell, Sherry Boelhert, Chris Gibson and John Faso, representatives who believed in and defended the values of rural upstate New Yorkers and the constitution of the U.S.. I am happy to say our next representative is one who will certainly live up to this legacy, and I couldn’t be more pleased to have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik as our next US Congressional Representative, especially as our party is sure to win back control of both houses this November. Elise is a worker and a warrior for what is right in Schoharie County and across America and as the number three person in leadership in the Republican caucus, it will be a true honor to have her as our representative. She will have my friendship and full support as our county’s Assembly representative, and as County Chair. We are very excited, because special opportunities like this don’t come knocking at our door often in our little county of Schoharie. We’re all in for Elise Stefanik!”
