Patrick Ziegler, the 20th Congressional Candidate from Burnt Hills, formally announced he would not be receiving the Republican endorsement. He encouraged supporters to support candidate Chris Gibson who would receive it at an afternoon conference Wednesday, March 31, at 3 p.m.
\I am very proud of what we have accomplished and I am flattered by the warm response I have received from much of the Republican leadership....the time I have spent with him [Gibson] over the past few weeks has convinced me that he is the right man for the job and it will be a privilege to assist him in his Congressional bid, said Ziegler in a statement.
Ziegler said he would attend the conference in support.
