Former candidate for New York Governor and businessman Carl Paladino is endorsing Assemblywoman Claudiia Tenney in her bid for Congress.

Paladino says Tenney is the conservative Republican choice for the 22nd District.

He says Tenney is a courageous fighter against higher taxes, mounting debt and deficits and the quote -- "terrible Obamacare law."

Tenney will face Congressman Richard Hanna and Michael Kicinski in the June 24th GOP primary.
