The Democrat made his announcements February 24 at the Lost Dog Café in Binghamton and in his hometown of Utica.

Brindisi won a tight race to defeat Republican Congresswoman Claudia Tenney two years ago.

She and George Phillips are vying for the Republican nomination.  Tenney has the endorsement of President Trump while Phillips has been campaigning on a message of change.
