Sundquist Thanks Supporters For Seeking A Better Direction

JAMESTOWN – It was a long, sometimes hard, fight to try and win the 23rd Congressional District Democratic Primary, but Jamestown’s Eddie Sundquist says his campaign had a real impact on seeking solutions.
Sundquist, in a press release, thanked his supporters for their efforts and said he will support the eventual nominee. The race will be decided by absentee ballots as Max Della Pia holds a 26 vote lead over Tracy Mitrano.
“Although we weren’t victorious in Tuesday’s election, I am more committed than ever to bringing change to the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes.  My dedication to our community never hinged on the outcome of one election, and I will continue to work hard alongside you to effect real change here in NY-23,” Sundquist said.
Sundquist said his campaign grew and gave voters a chance to be better informed and better able to consider solutions to issues important to them.
“We went from being virtually unknown to over thousands of supporters! During our journey we maintained the belief that the hard-working people of this district will ALWAYS be better off when they are informed on the real issues regarding their communities,” he said. “From front porches to living rooms, we noticed throughout our campaign that the simple act of speaking to voters had an enormous impact on fighting misinformation and working to create real solutions to improve our shared cause.”
The goal, Sundquist said, is to defeat incumbent Republican Tom Reed.
“After all the votes are counted, I will proudly get behind the winner as we look, together, to beating Tom Reed. For our farmers, for our families, for our future generation, I ask you to join me in supporting our next Democratic nominee.”
