The Saratoga County Republican Committee endorsed Elise Stefanik on Saturday for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, in the 21st Congressional District race in November.

Saratoga County Republican Committee Chairman John Herrick said in a news release Stefanik’s experience as a small businesswoman will lend her focus on creating jobs.

“There are many challenges ahead for our nation and Elise outlined a plan that will help the small businesses in our district grow. We look forward to working with her during the election season,” Herrick said in the release.

Stefanik said in the release she was “humbled” by the committee’s endorsement.

“When I was a kid, my family risked everything to start our family’s small business and we understand firsthand the challenges facing small businesses in Upstate New York. The people of the 21st Congressional District deserve a new representative with fresh ideas who will help fix Washington,” Stefanik said in the release.

The other candidates are Joseph Gilbert, a U.S. Army major and tea party leader from St. Lawrence County, and Michael Ring, a broadcast engineer and political activist from Jefferson County.

The 21st District includes Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties, and all or parts of nine other counties, stretching from Lake Champlain to Lake Ontario.
