MALTA – Earlier this month, two prominent Republicans endorsed the campaign by political newcomer Morgan Zegers for New York’s 113th Assembly District.
On Friday, Feb. 9, U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) gave the keynote address during the Saratoga County Republican Committee’s Annual Cocktail Party at Saratoga National Golf Club, where she formally endorsed Zegers for the State Assembly seat.
As part of her studies at American University in Washington, D.C., Zegers served as an intern for Stefanik and ever since the women have maintained communications.
On Thursday, Feb. 1, New York Sen. Jim Tedisco (R-Glenville) also endorsed Zegers during her campaign kickoff event at Longfellow’s Restaurant on Union Avenue.
“I believe I am the right woman for the job and I am humbled to know Congresswoman Stefanik and Senator Tedisco agree,” Zegers said in a prepared statement.
The Saratoga County Board of Elections has not set the official date in September for the Republican primary. If Zegers wins that contest, she aims to unseat incumbent Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner (D-Round Lake) in the Nov. 6 general election.
