(Erie County, N.Y.) – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) is announcing he has been endorsed by New York State Senator Tom O’Mara (SD-58) for the newly drawn 23rd congressional district.
“I had the honor of serving with Chris in the New York State Senate. He is a strong, fiscally conservative leader and was a tireless advocate for the people of Western New York who fought against the reckless policies being forced on our Upstate region by out-of-touch New York City liberals in Albany. Since being elected to Congress, Chris has continued that fight. He has consistently defended our constitutional rights, fought to end reckless spending, bring prices down, secure our southern border, and restore our economy. Chris lives here, is raising his family here, and is a true fighter who understands that the future of New York and our country rests in supporting our small businesses, farmers, and families. He has proven himself, and I am certain he will fully and fairly represent the region and values of the Southern Tier. I am proud to offer him my full endorsement for the new 23rd congressional district,” Senator O’Mara said.
“I am honored to have the support of my former colleague in the Senate and friend, Tom O’Mara. Tom has been fighting for the Southern Tier with continued dedication in Albany, I look forward to joining him in that fight in Congress and using our strong partnership to ensure generations of success for the region,” Jacobs said. “Communities across the Southern Tier face numerous challenges from high prices at the pump and in stores to increasing economic development. When we take back the House and restore strong conservative leadership, I will work to ensure those challenges are met, overcome, and we are set up for a prosperous future.”
Congressman Chris Jacobs is a conservative leader in the House of Representatives. He was first elected in 2020 and has been a fighter in Congress to secure our southern border, protect our constitutional rights, support our small businesses, restore our energy independence, and bring prices down for hardworking families.
