MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer recently endorsed Justin Wagner for state Senate during a rally at Wagner's Mount Pleasant campaign headquarters.
"Justin Wagner is the partner I need in state government fighting for middle-class families in the Hudson Valley," Schumer said in a statement. "I'm thrilled to endorse Justin, and I know he will be a champion for middle-class tax relief in Albany."
Wagner is running to fill the seat that is currently held by Greg Ball, who has opted to not seek re-election.
"Sen. Chuck Schumer is a champion for New York's middle class, and I am thrilled to have his support," said Justin Wagner. "If elected, I will be working hand in hand with Sen. Schumer to deliver tax relief, create jobs and help middle-class families in the Hudson Valley."
