Matthew Hamilton is reporting at Capitol Confidential President Barack Obama Mon., Oct. 24, endorsed 19th Congressional District Democratic candidate Zephyr Teachout. Obama said in a statement, “I’m proud to endorse Zephyr Teachout for the United States House of Representatives. In Congress, Zephyr will be the kind of reform-minded leader we need to build on all of the progress we’ve made over the last eight years to create a stronger, fairer country for our children." Teachout is running against Kinderhook Republican John Faso for the seat currently held by Chris Gibson. In a late-September Time Warner Cable News/Siena College poll the Faso and Teachout were nearly deadlocked. Teachout also received the endorsement of former Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders. Read the full story at Capitol Confidential, a Times Union blog.
