Republican congressional candidate Claudia Tenney was endorsed Tuesday by the socially conservative New Yorkers For Constitutional Freedoms political action committee.

The PAC’s endorsement comes as Tenney faces a Republican primary for the central New York congressional seat that is being vacated by Republican Rep. Richard Hanna.

“I am honored to accept the endorsement of NYCF, a leader in fighting to preserve personal and religious liberty, the sanctity of life and constitutional government,” Tenney said in a statement. “During my time in the New York State Assembly, I have worked alongside NYCF to advocate for commonsense conservative solutions to the failed big government policies and social experiments of New York City liberals. I look forward to working with Rev. Jason McGuire and NYCF to advance those same policies in Congress.”

Tenney last challenged Hanna for the congressional seat in 2014, though she lost the nomination to him that year. This year, Hanna chose to not run for re-election after Tenney launched a second bid for the district.

In a statement, the Rev. Jason McGuire, the executive director of the PAC, cited Tenney’s opposition to the SAFE Act and expanded abortion provisions.

“During her tenure in the New York State Assembly, Tenney has taken principled stands by voting against the SAFE Act, late-term abortion expansion and taxpayer funding of campaigns; she has also demonstrated conservative leadership by sponsoring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, along with a bill to repeal the SAFE Act,” McGuire said. “The Assemblywoman has also spoken out against casino expansion and in favor of additional protections for victims of human trafficking and religious liberty.”
