Today during a joint press conference Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) publicly endorsed Republican Josh Mertzlufft as the candidate he supports to take his place representing the people of Tonawanda, Grand Island, Hamburg, Orchard Park, Brant, Evans, and Buffalo across the 60th State Senate District.
“I’m proud to endorse Josh for the 60th State Senate District to replace me,” said Jacobs. “I’ve gotten to know Josh extensively over the last six months. I’ve always been under the belief that we need people in government who have real world experience, who want to go in for a period of time to make a difference, and then who go and live under the laws that they pass. Josh fits that bill.”
“The reason I’m running for the State Senate is simple,” said Mertzlufft. “I want New York to prosper, but our state is not on the path to prosperity. I have lived in Western New York my whole life, and I cherish our region and our values. I want to serve Western New York in Albany, fighting to restore New York to a place of prosperity, where families, businesses, and communities can thrive.”
“I know Sean Ryan,” added Jacobs “…Sean is extremely liberal and really is much more in line with the New York City Democratic party, and I just don’t believe that he’s aligned with the 60th Senate District. He might be aligned with the Elmwood Village, but he doesn’t align with Hamburg where Josh is from, with Tonawanda, Grand Island and the other areas I represented.”
The endorsement from Congressman Jacobs is the latest in an ongoing groundswell of support for the Mertzlufft campaign, that has already reached thousands of voters across the 60th State Senate district, sharing Josh Mertzlufft’s vision to Rebuild, Renew, and Restore New York as a place where both families and businesses can thrive.
