Hochul endorses Conole for New York’s 22nd Congressional District seat

Posted

SYRACUSE  — Gov. Kathy Hochul announced her endorsement of Francis Conole for New York’s 22nd Congressional District. This endorsement comes on the heels of Conole earning the nomination in the 22nd district where he will face Republican Brandon Williams in the November general election.

“From his time in the Navy to his time at the Pentagon, Fran Conole has shown up and fought for New Yorkers and our nation,” Hochul said in a statement. “Fran is focused on the issues that matter — whether it’s protecting a woman’s right to choose or fighting to lower costs for Central New York families. It’s an honor to endorse Fran Conole, and I look forward to working to elect him to congress this November.”

“I am thrilled to have Governor Hochul’s support in our race to bring real and effective leadership to NY-22. Governor Hochul has been a champion for our working families and has been delivering for Central New York since her first day in office. She understands what is at stake in November, the threat Brandon Williams poses to working families and women’s rights and why we must win here in NY-22.” Conole said. 

According to the announcement, Conole holds an almost 3 to 1 edge in cash on hand over Williams as of the last FEC filing report. It adds that Conole has served at the highest levels of the military and government as a Naval Academy graduate, Iraq War veteran, and former advisor to the Secretary of Defense.

The candidate adds that his platform “is laser focused on addressing the challenges working people face — lowering costs for working families, taking on big corporations and corruption in Washington – as well as protecting a woman’s right to choose.”
