College student plans Assembly run

A Republican college student from Beacon plans to challenge Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson for the seat Jacobson won two years ago in a heavily Democratic district.

The prospective Republican candidate for the 104th Assembly District is Andrew Gauzza, whose Facebook page lists him as a government major at Manhattan College in the Bronx.

Jacobson, a former longtime Orange County Democratic chairman, won the Assembly seat after serving leaving his party leadership position and serving on the Newburgh City Council. The seat had been vacant for several months since the death that April of Frank Skartados, the Democratic assemblyman who last represented the 104th District.

The district includes the cities of Newburgh, Beacon and Poughkeepsie, along with the towns of Newburgh, Lloyd and Marlborough, and has more than twice as many enrolled Democratic voters as Republicans. Jacobson beat his Republican opponent by about 7,000 votes in 2018.
