I've stood up for them, I have their back in Albany, and I'm so pleased they have my back here at home," says Senator James Seward.
Mr. Seward is being challenged by republican James Blake. Regarding other candidates, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi of Utica has been endorsed by the New York State Nurses Association in his campaign for the new 119th state assembly district seat.
