Mike Ring dropped out of the 21st Congressional District race on Friday and endorsed fellow Republican Elise Stefanik.

“She’s got a lot of energy, and most of her view points fit with mine,” said Ring, a broadcast engineer and political activist from Jefferson County.

Ring said he will continue to focus on his goal of bringing disenfranchised voters back into the election process.

Ring said he announced his endorsement at a meeting of county Republican chairmen in Elizabethtown on Friday, when the party announced its endorsement of Stefanik.

Stefanik, a businesswoman and former White House policy adviser from Willsboro, is one of three declared candidates still seeking the Republican nomination, after Ring dropped out.

The other candidates are Joseph Gilbert, a retired U.S. Army major and tea party leader from St. Lawrence County, and Jamie Waller, a political consultant from Hamilton County.

“I know Joe’s a good candidate too,” Ring said. “So I’ve talked with him about this and explained my reasoning behind endorsing Elise, and it was nothing against Joe.”
