We are more than a year away from congressional elections but one republican is already declaring his candidacy.
Former State Assemblyman and 2006 Gubernatorial candidate John Faso will run for the Republican nomination for the 19th District Congressional seat. That seat is currently held by Republican Chris Gibson who has announced he will not run for a fourth term.
Faso joins Dutchess County Businessman Andrew Heaney as candidates for the republican nomination. Faso says he wants to see Washington do more to support small businesses.
