Rep. Anthony Brindisi remains in a strong position to hold the 22nd Congressional seat in November, entering the General Election on three party lines – Democratic, Independence, and Working Families Party – after being unchallenged in Tuesday’s Primary.

Brindisi heads to November being challenged by one-term former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney and Libertarian candidate Keith Price. Brindisi has more than five times the cash on hand than the two candidates combined.

“Congressman Brindisi has proven himself to be an independent voice and outspoken fighter who has stood up to Washington politicians and delivered real results for Upstate New York, passing four bills signed into law by President Trump. He has kept his word to the voters, from the Southern Tier to Oswego, which is why so many are eager to support his re-election,” said Campaign Manager Lucy MacIntosh.
