Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing New York Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney in the 22nd Congressional District of New York. CUPVF has also contributed $5,000 for Tenney’s primary.
“Claudia Tenney is a principled conservative change agent who will go to Washington with her constituent’s priorities as her paramount concern,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Assemblywoman Tenney is a pro-small business, pro-Second Amendment, pro-life conservative reformer who will be an effective leader in New York’s 22nd congressional district.”
“Upstate New Yorkers deserve a representative in Congress who has the courage and tenacity to reform Barack Obama’s job-killing agenda. Assemblywoman Tenney has a proven record of boldly standing against corruption, cronyism and failed big government policies. Richard Hanna has proven time and time again that he will not fight the failed status quo in Washington that is crippling our economic growth.”
“Rep. Hanna’s recent comments assaulting the investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attacks are shameful. The victim’s families and the American people deserve to know the truth and facts about the death of these heroes. As a Marine Mom, Claudia Tenney will support initiatives that protect and defend our military and Foreign Service workers from peril,” added Bossie.
“Another stunning example of Hanna’s rubber stamp of the Washington liberal agenda is his staunch support of Planned Parenthood’s suspect agenda and his unapologetic acceptance of their campaign cash. I urge all voters in New York’s 22nd congressional district to vote for Claudia Tenney in the June primary. It’s time for Richard Hanna to go.”
