Central New York Congressman John Katko has endorsed State Senator John DeFrancisco, who is running for NYS Governor.

In a statement, Katko said the following: 

“In Central New York, we’ve consistently had strong leadership at the state level.  Senator DeFrancisco has stood up for our community over the years and worked across party lines to fight for our best interests in Albany.  He’s been a bipartisan voice for Central New York families, for our veterans, our small business community, and Upstate farmers and growers.  As Deputy Majority Leader and Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, he’s worked to make New York more fiscally responsible and been a champion for Upstate New York.
“Now, John is running for Governor so that all of New York State may benefit from his leadership.  It is my privilege to endorse John DeFrancisco as the next Governor for the State of New York.”

DeFrancisco has also been endorsed by multiple county GOP committees.
