NEW YORK STATE -- It's been a challenging re-election campaign for Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, but the representative for what currently stands as the 115th District, will represent the Republican Party on the ticket for the newly created 101st Assembly District.
Tenney faced a primary challenge from Walden Mayor Brian Maher. The downstate representative held an advantage with his local constituents, but managed to get less than 40 percent of the vote in Thursday's primary.
Tenney says the newly drawn lines pose a major challenge for all of the candidates, but she's done her best to get her name out there.
"We know that this district is a challenge, but the constitution states that we should have effective representation and I'm trying my hardest to make sure that every person in this district gets effective representation," Tenney said.
The two candidates were also vying for the Conservative Party line, although that race was too close to call as of Thursday night.
Herkimer County's Dan Carter will be on the Democratic Party line in November.
