From the Morning Memo:

The Police Conference of New York endorsed Rep. Claudia Tenney in her bid for re-election to New York’s 22nd District.

“Claudia Tenney is the law and order candidate. In Congress, she has always stood up to support our men and women in blue. She’s successfully delivered important funding for equipment upgrades for local police departments and the resources we need to keep our communities and families safe. The Police Conference of New York proudly endorses Claudia Tenney’s candidacy for the United States House of Representatives, said President of the Police Conference of New York, Richard Wells.

Tenney faces Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi in the upcoming general election.

“Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line each day to keep our families safe. We are all grateful for their service and sacrifice and it is a distinct honor to receive this endorsement. In Congress, I’ve been a staunch advocate for law enforcement, and fought tirelessly to secure federal funding that provides our law enforcement with the best resources possible to keep our communities safe and secure our border,” said Claudia Tenney. “I will continue to be a strong voice for our state and local law enforcement officials.”

In a recent October Spectrum News-Siena College poll, Brindisi led Tenney 46 to 45 percent. 53 percent of district voters said they approved of the job President Trump is doing and that same number prefers Republicans to maintain control in Congress.

The candidates faced off in a Spectrum News debate yesterday, Thursday, October 25th at Colgate University.
