Local Republican officials vague about Trump support

Aug 13, 2016 12:45 am
John Mason, Greg Hudson and Daniel Zuckerman in the Register-Star poll local Republican officials and cannot find one to say outright that they are supporting presidential candidate Donald Trump. Assemblyman Pete Lopez, who represents the 102nd District including parts of Ulster, Greene, and Schoharie counties, said Aug. 10, “I haven’t endorsed anyone. I’m a registered Republican; Trump is the Republican candidate. What I’m waiting for is for both candidates to focus on the needs and issues of the people first, and put their bantering aside. What are their plans for the country? That’s what the people are interested in.” Congressperson Chris Gibson, from Kinderhook, said July 18 he plans to vote “for a Republican.” John Faso, the Republican running for Gibson’s seat, did refer to Trump as “our candidate,” saying, “if I had any advice for our candidate, he should focus on jobs, the economy, and national security — that’s what voters care about.” State Senators Kathy Marchione and George Amedore, Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, Columbia County Republican Chairman Greg Fingar, and Board of Supervisors Chairman Matt Murell, all did not return the Register-Star's calls for comment on their endorsements.
