From today’s press release:
The Congressional candidate for New York’s 29th District received the simultaneous endorsement of three Southern Tier mayors, Frank Coccho of Corning, Shawn Hogan of Hornell, and John Tonello of Elmira. … This is the first time in 50 years that the three Southern Tier cities have had Democratic mayors and the opportunity to endorse a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives.
Elmira Mayor John Tonello, who could not attend and instead sent a written statement, summed up the sentiments of the morning: “It’s imperative that we elect a man who represents us all – and represents us well. Eric has crisscrossed the 29th District and talked with thousands of men and women, in large groups and small. He has listened to the People from the very beginning – and will continue to listen. When the new Congress convenes on January 1st, he’ll truly be our voice in Washington.”
With only 56 days left until the November 7th general election, Eric Massa’s campaign is on track to be the most competitive in New York. Less than a week ago, the Wall Street Journal listed the contest between Massa and freshman Republican incumbent Randy Kuhl as the top challenger race in the state. … Kuhl’s low-energy pace contrasts sharply with Massa’s vigorous schedule, as he has campaigned across the 29th District constantly for nearly two years.
