Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino endorsed congressional candidate John Faso on Thursday in the 19th congressional district.

Astorino, speaking with Faso in Kingston, praised Faso’s record on fiscal issues.

“If you’re as sick and tired of high taxes and smothering Washington overreach as I am, John Faso is your candidate for Congress,” Astorino said. “John is the voice of struggling taxpayers in this congressional district, and his policy solutions to get the economy kick-started are rock-solid. It’s an easy choice: A vote for Faso is a vote for lower taxes and job growth; a vote for his opponent is a vote to raise your taxes and to hand control of every aspect of your life to bumbling Washington bureaucrats.”

Faso and Astorino have at least one thing in common: both men ran for governor, albeit unsuccessfully. Faso was the GOP nominee in 2006; Astorino ran two years ago against Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Faso is facing another former gubernatorial candidate from 2014, Democrat Zephyr Teachout, in the Hudson Valley congressional district.

Teachout unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination against Cuomo two years ago.

“Much like County Executive Astorino, I believe we need to be laser-focused on serious issues affecting residents in this district such growing the economy, helping small businesses and keeping the size of federal government in check,” Faso said. “Washington and its bureaucrats have run amok and we need leaders who are willing to take on the madness and change it. I share County Executive Astorino’s concerns and I am grateful to have his support.”
