Former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney may look to retake the NY-22 seat she lost to Anthony Brindisi last fall.

Tenney told CNBC this week that she's thinking about it, and in fact, is 'leaning toward' another run. She also said members of the National Republican Congressional Committee have encouraged her to do so.

''They know that I am the only one who can win it,'' Tenney told CNBC.

Tenney lost to Brindisi in the 2018 midterm elections after winning the seat in 2016. If Tenney, 58, is to get into the race she'll join a growing list of Republicans who have already launched their campaigns: George Phillips, Steve Cornwell and Franklin Sager have all announced plans to run in NY-22, which begins at the New York-Pennsylvania border and continues up to Lake Ontario and includes the cities of Binghamton, Cortland, Norwich, Utica, Rome and Oneida.
