PLATTSBURGH — North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik posted a statement following Thursday's protest outside her Glens Falls office.

"I am proudly not a Socialist, she said in a Facebook post.

"Their fellow activist and open border candidate Taxin’ Tedra (Democrat Tedra Cobb) must be proud to have the Socialist Party supporting her campaign."

The post also included, "2020 will be a choice between my campaign of New York 21 North Country Results vs. Taxin’ Tedra’s Far-Left & now Socialist Party-fueled Resistance."
