Plenty of potential challengers for Rep. Stefanik in 2018

Local News

Over a year and a half away from the election, as many as five North Country Democrats are already considering challenging North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.

That’s according to what St. Lawrence’s County Democratic Chairman told 7 News.

One of the potentials is former St. Lawrence County Legislator Tedra Cobb. Cobb, who owns a consulting firm, previously was on the Legislature until 2010.

Currently, Patrick Nelson of Saratoga County is the only person who has announced an intention to run against Rep. Stefanik, although it’s expected Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello will run again.

Stefanik earned a second term in office this past November.
