Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy on Friday endorsed former Rep. Claudia Tenney's bid for the seat she lost in 2018.
Langworthy's endorsement of Tenney comes before a Republican primary next week for the 22nd congressional district; she faces George Phillips.
“I’m pleased to join President Trump in offering my full support for Claudia Tenney,” Langworthy said. “Claudia has a proven track record of delivering results and being an effective champion for President Trump’s successful agenda. With her as our nominee, we are going to take this seat back and get one step closer to regaining a strong Republican majority in Congress. She is the fighter we need in Washington to help President Trump once again deliver a booming economy and restore law-and-order. I urge Republicans to join me in supporting her.”
President Donald Trump has also tweeted his support for Tenney's campaign as she seeks to run against Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi.
“It’s an honor to have the backing of the New York State Republican Party and Chairman Langworthy,” Tenney said. “Their support shows that as Republicans, we all need to unite to elect real, proven conservative leadership in November and defeat the radical agenda of Biden and Brindisi. We need to work together to restore personal freedom, build a thriving economy, and protect America.“
