In response to a tweet from President Donald Trump Thursday suggesting postponing the November federal elections because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Daily Sentinel asked the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates for the 22nd Congressional District for a response.
“We should not delay our election,” incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi of Utica said in a statement. “In Congress, I am working with Democrats and Republicans to provide much-needed resources for our local governments for November’s election. There is no evidence of wide-spread fraud from mail-in voting and I am confident our state and local officials will put on a safe and fair election this November.”
The Sentinel received no response from the Tenney campaign as of press time.
