STEFANIK EARNS ENDORSEMENTS FROM ALL FIVE NY STATE SENATORS IN NY-21

– Recognized for Record of Results as Strong Federal Partner Fighting for North Country Taxpayers, Farmers, Military Service Members and for Every Hard Working Family –

Glens Falls, NY: The Stefanik campaign today announced the endorsement of every New York State Senator representing the 21st District:

  • Senator Joseph Griffo, 47th Senate District
  • Senator Betty Little, 45th Senate District
  • Senator Kathy Marchione, 43rd Senate District
  • Senator Patty Ritchie, 48th Senate District
  • Senator Jim Tedisco, 49th Senate District

“Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is a strong voice for Upstate taxpayers who fights for her constituents in Washington,” said State Senator Jim Tedisco (49th District). “I’m proud to support Congresswoman Stefanik and work with her to protect Upstate New York’s quality of life.”

“Elise is a strong voice and an effective advocate on so many issues important to me and the constituents that we both represent,” said State Senator Betty Little (45th District). “She has also shown her independence by opposing policies that have come out of Washington, DC that haven’t been right for the North Country.”

“I am extremely proud to endorse my friend Elise Stefanik for Congress,” said State Senator Kathy Marchione (43rd District). “It has been a pleasure to work with Elise during my time as a Senator. After I retire from public service I will feel a sense of relief that there are energetic public servants like Elise who will continue to defend our values and fight for us. I encourage everyone when they go to the polls to vote for Congresswoman Stefanik.”

“We need Elise’s continued leadership in Congress,” said State Senator Patty Ritchie (48th District). “She is a staunch advocate for North Country workers and has a deep understanding of the issues that drive our economy. I look forward to continuing to work with Elise to make our region a better place to live, work and raise a family.”

“As Chair of the Energy and Telecommunications Committee in the New York State Senate, I have worked hand in hand with Congresswoman Stefanik to try to tackle the massive issue of broadband access for our rural communities, said State Senator Joseph Griffo (47th District). “We have worked on the State and Federal level to make sure we can integrate our farmers and rural communities into our expanding 21st-century infrastructure. Elise has been instrumental and has shown true initiative in solving this problem along with a host of other issues such as defending Fort Drum from dangerous cuts. Elise is the right choice this November, and I am proud to endorse her.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of every North Country State Senator,” said Stefanik. “I’ve been honored to work with each of them to help deliver real results for our hard working families and small businesses. I thank them for their support, and for the tremendous support of our entire grassroots network helping us earn every vote and to win on Election Day.”

Yesterday, Congresswoman Stefanik was endorsed by five North Country State Assembly members.

Earlier this month, the Stefanik campaign announced the endorsement of 600 local elected and appointed leaders from all twelve counties within the 21st District.
