Tedisco Files Nearly 5,000 Petition Signatures to Run on 2 Ballot Lines for New 51st Senate District Seat

Senator Tedisco to run in June 28th Republican Primary and is the Only Republican Candidate Endorsed to run on NYS Conservative Party Line

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) today announced he has filed close to 5,000 total signatures to run for the new 51st Senate District seat on both the Republican Party line and on the Conservative Party line. Tedisco’s Team garnered signatures and volunteer support in each of the seven counties in the new 51st Senate District.


Tedisco, who will be on the Republican ballot for the June 28th Republican Primary, is the only Republican candidate to also have secured the coveted endorsement of the New York State Conservative Party to run on their ballot line.  Earlier this year, Senator Tedisco was honored by the state Conservative Party for having a 100 percent conservative voting record.


Senator Tedisco also has secured the Republican endorsements from the Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery and Schenectady County Republican Committees, which is nearly 60 percent of the weighted vote.


“Thanks to the support of 175 volunteers and nearly 5,000 voters from all seven counties in the district who signed my petitions, I am on the Republican ballot for the June 28th Republican Primary Election for the new 51st Senate District! I’m also proud to be the only endorsed Conservative Party candidate and I will be on that line for the November election. I’m especially proud of my 100 percent conservative Republican voting record and look forward to continuing to be a strong voice for the people standing up and fighting the status quo and Albany insiders,” said Senator Jim Tedisco.


Editor’s Note: The new 51st state Senate District includes portions of Fulton, Herkimer and Schenectady Counties and all of Chenango, Montgomery, Otsego and Schoharie Counties.
