NEW WINDSOR – In recent weeks State Assemblyman Colin Schmitt (R, New Windsor) has taken aim at Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18).

He condemned the representative for his appointment of a convicted felon to a high-level Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee post and on Wednesday, blasted Maloney for not criticizing fellow Democrat, Governor Andrew Cuomo, over what opponents say was the governor’s seemingly criminal behavior over the placement of COVID-19 positive people in nursing homes.

Schmitt’s targeting of Maloney has raised the question of it he has his sights on a congressional run.

“People have certainly been reaching out about their concerns over current representation and let’s just say I am going to continue to do my role, and if I feel someone isn’t doing their role, I will be happy to see if we need to replace them,” he told Mid-Hudson News.

Schmitt is in his second two-year term in the State Assembly.
