Stefanik trying to repeat win in 21st Congressional District
In 2014, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) won a primary and a three-way general election to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. This year’s election has provided different challenges in the race for the North Country's 21st Congressional District. WRVO news director Catherine Loper spoke with reporter Brian Mann from North Country Public Radio about the state of Stefanik’s re-election race against Democrat Mike Derrick and Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello. They began their conversation by discussing whether or not the campaign has been a referendum on Stefanik's first term.
The 21st Congressional District spans northern New York from Jefferson County to the Vermont border.
