Chenango County Republican voters will cast ballots Tuesday in a primary election to choose a candidate for a U.S. House of Representatives seat.
Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney will challenge Rep. Richard Hanna to be on the ballot in November’s general election for the 22nd Congressional District seat.
Hanna, of Barneveld, was first elected to the House in 2010 when he defeated Democrat Michael Arcuri to represent the 24th Congressional District, which included about half of Otsego County and all of Chenango County. After the 2010 census, Hanna’s district shifted west and no longer includes any Otsego County towns. Hanna won re-election to the new 22nd district in 2012.
Tenney, of New Hartford, entered the state Assembly in 2010, when she ran unopposed for the 115th district seat, representing portions of Oneida and Oswego counties. Tenney defeated Democrat Daniel Carter in 2012 to represent the new 101st district, which stretches from Oneida County to Orange County, and includes portions of Otsego and Delaware counties.
