The Warren County Conservative Party late Tuesday endorsed Queensbury resident Ted Wilson for Warren County judge over incumbent Judge John Hall.
Wilson, a former Warren County first assistant district attorney who works as court attorney for Washington County Judge Stan Pritzker, is running against Hall, a Democrat.
"I'm really excited about it and looking forward to the next step," Wilson said. "I'm honored they chose me over three other good candidates."
Conservative Party Chairwoman Carol Birkholz announced the endorsement late Tuesday.
She said Wilson received the endorsement over Hall, Queensbury Justice Robert McNally and lawyer Daniel Mannix.
She said she could not release the vote tally, but said the four candidates were well-qualified but Wilson's interest and involvement in Conservative ideology set him apart and "spoke volumes."
Hall had received the Conservative Party endorsement when he ran for election in 2003.
The Warren County Republican Committee was to meet Wednesday night to consider an endorsement, and Wilson, McNally and Mannix are seeking the Republican nomination.
