Primary Election 2014: Tenney Looking to Take Seat

Voters across Central New York cast their ballots Tuesday in the Republican Primary Race, all to decide who will represent you in the 22nd District of New York.
Voters across Central New York cast their ballots Tuesday in the Republican Primary Race, all to decide who will represent you in the 22nd District of New York.

One of the many polling sites was St. George's Orthodox Church in New Hartford which was also the polling site for Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney. She says win or lose this has been quite an experience.

"It’s just been really really interesting, interesting to have the conversations, I love talking about the constitution and American principles and values, it has just been a really great experience,” said Tenney.

Assemblywoman Tenney is running against incumbent Congressman Richard Hanna for the 22nd District's seat. She says she feels confident people are voting for her to see a change in Washington.

"I think people are looking for a change in the status quo, I think they're not happy with Washington, they would like to see a change and I don't think they've seen that with Richard Hanna," said Tenney.

A steady stream of voters cast their ballots in New Hartford throughout the day. Some say no matter how large or small the race, voting is a right that must be exercised.

"These are the people that are going to represent you in the main election and if you go to the polls in November and you say 'well, I don't like any of these candidates' well, this is your opportunity to choose one that you would want to represent you,” says Laura McDonald of New Hartford.

"It's a privilege to vote, a lot of countries don't have that privilege for voting you know, a lot of countries are corrupt, they fix the voting, this a great country, you've got to get your voice out,” said Robert Zumpano, also a New Hartford voter.

The polls close at 9:00 PM Tuesday night.
