Claudia Tenney, the Republican candidate for the 22nd Congressional District seat, has received the endorsement of 19th District Congressman Chris Gibson.

Tenney was at Fiber Instrument Sales in Oriskany today, where she kicked off trade and manufacturing week.

“I’m here to endorse in the strongest terms, Claudia Tenney. We need her to represent us in Congress,” Congressman Gibson said. “Claudia and I share constituents in four counties and work together on a near daily basis to better serve the people we represent. I couldn’t have worked with a stronger professional.”

She'll make several stops throughout the district next week to address trade and manufacturing issues

Tenney will face Democrat Kim Myers and Independent candidate Martin Babinec in the November election for the seat currently held by Richard Hanna.

Hanna is retiring at the end of the year.
