The number of candidates challenging second-term Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik of New York’s 21st district continues to grow. Five Democrats and one Republican are in the race. The Green Party is expected to announce candidates and a Libertarian has also expressed interest in the seat. St. Lawrence County business consultant Tedra Cobb is among the announced Democrats. She says she decided to run after tracking recent Congressional action on health care.

“I’ve participated in the community on many levels on boards, working in health care and as a county legislator and quite frankly after the health care vote that not only Representative Stefanik voted for but was lining up votes for I felt that it was time to get back into my community service through running for office again.”
