SAUGERTIES – State Assemblyman Peter Lopez (R, Schoharie) appears almost ready to announce his congressional bid.
Lopez, whose district includes a portion of Ulster County, has been toying
with running for the 19th Congressional District seat held by fellow Republican
Christopher Gibson who has announced he will not seek a third term next
Lopez told MidHudsonNews.com he will make an announcement in about a month.
“We are working very aggressively on it; we are looking at it very hard. We are hoping to have a formal announcement within the next four weeks,” he said. “We are taking it very seriously and working in that direction.”
This is the first time Lopez has sounded so positive about a congressional run. Previously, he would just say for months that he was weighing his options.
