Our debate between the three candidates in the 21st Congressional District will be October 8. Republican Elise Stefanik, Democrat Aaron Woolf, and Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello have all agreed to participate. Stefanik is a former Bush White House aide, Woolf is a documentary filmmaker, and Funiciello owns a bakery. The three are running for the North Country seat held by Rep. Bill Owens. Owens won the seat in a 2009 special election, making him the first Democrat to represent the region in over a century. But he decided earlier this year not to seek another term. It’s the largest geographic district in the state, and the debate will air at 7pm on TWC News in the Capital Region, Northern New York, and Central New York and online at twcnews.com.
The race will also be featured in our Fight for the House series airing this week on Capital Tonight.
