Rep. Stefanik and her campaign claimed to have found thousands of irregularities in our petitions for the CD21 Unites Ballot Line. Rather than battle Stefanik’s high-dollar attorneys, our campaign accepts the NYS Board of Elections’ decision that we were 343 signatures short. While we are confident that many of these signatures would have been authenticated by the court, we are choosing to use campaign resources to talk with voters about the issues that matter to them.
Tedra Cobb says, “I want to thank the volunteer signature gatherers who, in a very short time frame, had over 3500 conversations with voters from every party affiliation as well as those who don’t identify with a party. We cannot overlook the fact that hundreds of volunteers have collected over 8800 signatures in support of my campaign. This proves the voters of Northern NY are ready for a representative who will choose problem-solving over partisanship. I am honored to have their support and I remain committed to bringing real North Country representation to Washington.”
