DeWitt Republican Tim Ko has dropped out of the race for New York’s 22nd congressional district and endorsed Tompkins County Legislator Mike Sigler for the seat.
Now, just two Republicans are vying for party’s nomination for NY-22: Sigler, who is from Lansing, and Sennett resident Brandon Williams, according to The Citizen. Sigler is the current front-runner, having received endorsements from GOP committees in Cayuga, Seneca, Tompkins, and Onondaga counties.
Ko met with Sigler and Williams before making his endorsement. He ultimately decided Sigler had the best chance of winning come the primary election on June 28.
Williams, on the other hand, received the Conservative Party endorsement and plans to force a primary against Sigler.
