The Conservative Party committees that constitute the 24th Congressional District (Onondaga, Wayne, Cayuga and Oswego) have endorsed former U.S. Attorney John Katko to challenge Dan Maffei fr Congress in November.
Katko, of Camillus, beat several other candidates for the endorsement.
“While emphasis on the economy has to be our primary goal for this election”, state Ron Greenleaf from Oswego County Chairman, “it cannot be our only focus.
“Mr. Katko has shown an ability to grasp issues that face us locally and nationally. It’s great to have such strong candidate as John representing the Conservative Party and the 24th district,” Greenleaf said.
“Mr. Katko aligns with our Conservative principles philosophically and understands the significance of this election,” said Chuck Mancabelli, chairman of Onondaga County’s Conservative Party. “Mr. Katko has a strong command of the issues and more importantly, an ability to connect with the voters.”
“For me, John Katko has the right mix of strengths to prevail in this election and help restore common sense to the NYS Congressional delegation,” said Jim Quinn, chairman in Wayne County.
Katko recently received the four counties GOP endorsements. Republican and Conservative Party unity are critical for Katko’s success.
