Objections have been filed for all three candidates vying for the GOP line in the 22nd Congressional District.
Incumbent Rep. Richard Hanna and challengers Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney and Michael Kicinski have all had objections filed against their petitions, according to the state Board of Elections.
Hanna, a described moderate Republican from Barneveld, is facing off against current Assemblywoman Tenney of New Hartford and Kicinski, who is an unemployed electronic engineer from Earlville.
Democrats have failed to put up a candidate to run in the district.
Donald Jeror filed the complaints against Hanna’s Independence and Republican petitions as well as Kicinski’s petitions, according to BOE records while a Brian Noonan filed against Kicinski and Tenney.
Jeror had until April 16 to file a specific grievance against the petitions while Noonan has until the 21st.
Tenney’s 101st Assembly district nicks the borders of Orange, Ulster and Sullivan counties and meanders northward through Delaware, Otsego, Herkimer and Oneida counties. She’s serving her second term in Albany and the seat is up for reelection this year.
The 22nd Congressional district is comprised of Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Oswego and Tioga counties.
