Rep. Williams faces uphill re-election battle in new version of NY-22

In the face of a challenging reelection campaign for the newly configured 22nd Congressional District in Central New York, U.S. Rep. Brandon Williams is receiving a significant show of support from prominent Republican leaders.

High-ranking officials, including U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, the No. 3 House Republican, and state GOP chairs, have publicly endorsed Williams, emphasizing his commitment to common sense principles and secure borders. Stefanik expressed her full support, highlighting Williams’ military background and dedication to conservative values.


The redrawing of the 22nd Congressional District, incorporating regions with a Democratic voter majority, has not deterred Republican optimism. Despite the demographic hurdles, Williams and his supporters are confident in retaining the seat, drawing parallels to Republican Lee Zeldin’s performance in the area during the previous gubernatorial race.

This battle is poised to be a focal point in the national political landscape, with significant investment from both Republican and Democratic camps.
