Broome County District Attorney Stephen Cornwell (R) just announced that he will not seek re-election next year in order to pursue other political opportunities. The statement is widely interpreted to mean that the local DA plans to challenge freshman Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-Utica), who upended one-term Republican Claudia Tenney (R-New Hartford) by a small 50.1 – 48.3% margin of victory.
It is also possible that Ms. Tenney may seek a re-match, but it is evident from Mr. Cornwell’s move that she will face a battle for re-nomination should she again choose to enter the congressional fray.
