Stefanik campaign files signatures for four ballot lines

ELIZABETHTOWN, NY — Rep. Elise Stefanik’s re-election campaign announced Monday it has filed over 8,500 signatures across four party ballot lines with the state Board of Elections.
Seven Democrats have announced campaigns to deny the lawmaker a third term, and have also been circulating petitions ahead of this week’s filing deadline.
Most campaigns have indicated to The Sun they have enough signatures to make the ballot, a measure that will trigger a primary election on June 26.
Tedra Cobb, a former St. Lawrence County lawmaker, wrapped up a two-day, 450-mile tour of New York’s 21st Congressional District on Monday, and is scheduled to submit what her campaign said was “thousands of petition signatures” in Albany on Tuesday.
