Steve Williams will seem on the poll within the twenty fourth Congressional District, however he is not voting for himself. He’s supporting Democratic candidate Dana Balter in opposition to Republican U.S. Rep. John Katko.
Balter, D-Syracuse, introduced Williams’ endorsement in a tweet Monday. Within the social media publish, Williams mentioned that Balter is “a robust progressive a champion for working households.”
“Whereas John Katko has spent his time in Washington enabling Donald Trump and his harmful agenda, Dana has been preventing for us,” mentioned Williams, a Syracuse lawyer who sought the Democratic nomination for Congress in 2016. “I belief Dana to be a fierce advocate for me, my household and all of us right here in central and western New York, and I could not be extra excited to solid my vote for her this fall.”
The endorsement is important as a result of Balter and Williams are technically opponents. Williams agreed to be a placeholder on the Working Households Celebration line for the winner of the Democratic major between Balter and Francis Conole. New York has fusion voting, which suggests candidates can run on a number of poll strains. Democrats often run on the Working Households line.
