SARATOGA COUNTY -- The Saratoga County Republican Committee has endorsed Liz Joy of Glenville as the Republican candidate to run against incumbent U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam, in the 20th Congressional District.
Joy "is the only candidate who firmly believes in protecting the taxpayer from government overreach. Liz will bring a common-sense approach to the position, advocating for every population in our communities and speaking out against dangerous laws, like that of bail reform,” said Carl Zeilman, chairman of the county Republican Committee.
“I want to thank the Saratoga GOP Committee for formally endorsing me," Joy said. "I’m excited to be working alongside such great people. This committee has a proven track record of success in every election cycle. They’re a great team and I’m glad to be a part of it.”
The Republican Committee also endorsed the re-elections of state Sens. Daphne Jordan, R-Halfmoon, in the 43rd Senate District, and Jim Tedisco, R-Glenville, in the 49th District, state Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh, R-Ballston, in the 112th Assembly District; and incumbent U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Schuylerville, in the 21st Congressional District.
The committee also endorsed Horicon Town Supervisor Matt Simpson for state Assembly in District 114, where Dan Stec of Queensbury is leaving to run for the state Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Sen. Betty Little. Four towns in northern Saratoga County are part of the 114th District, which covers most of the southeastern Adirondacks.
