NY-22 Candidates Getting Last Minute Endorsements in Tight Race
It's coming down to the wire in the 22nd Congressional District race between incumbent Claudia Tenney and challenger Anthony Brindisi.
On Monday, each candidate picked up a notable endorsement with just days remaining until Election Day. The Republican Tenney appeared at two events in the district, rallying with current NRA President and retired Lt. Col. Oliver North, who warned against electing Democrats to Congress, saying they'd impeach President Trump and abolish the NRA. North was just the latest national name to campaign for the incumbent, which underscores just how close the race is. Those names include President Trump himself and Eric Trump - who said a vote for Tenney was a vote in support of Trump.
Brindisi was in Utica where he got the backing of the New York Professional Firefighters Association. The Democrat was also recently endorsed by John 'Bowzer' Bauman of Sha Na Na fame for his stances on Social Security and Medicare.
A poll from Siena released just last week showed Brindisi with a slight 46-45% edge over Tenney, but well within the poll's margin of error.
