Lopez not definitive in run for Congress

Apr 17, 2015 12:03 am
The Schoharie News has a round-up of stories in the wake of the April 15 story in The Daily Mail about State Assemblyman Pete Lopez (R-Schoharie) running for the Congressional seat now held by Kinderhook Republican Chris Gibson. Lopez was not returning calls to The Schoharie News, or, apparently, other news organizations and The Oneonta Daily Star quoted sources close to Lopez saying, "the decision is still weeks away." Lopez did tell The Daily Freeman, “The attraction is not there is a glow to Washington, just like I feel there is no glow to Albany. But I am very much mission driven in terms of serving the needs of my community, and my goal in Albany is to fill the needs of the district, and my function is very utilitarian, I guess that’s the best way to describe it. That’s the way I would look at Washington as well.” The Schoharie News also says State Senator Jim Seward and former Assembly Minority Leader John Faso "have also been mentioned" as potential GOP candidates. In The Daily Mail story, Faso said he was “seriously considering” running for the seat. Read the full story in The Schoharie News.
