U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, will not attend the Republican National Convention July 18-21 in Cleveland, Lenny Alcivar, her campaign spokesman, said Tuesday.

"She will be in the district working for her constituents," said Alcivar, in response to an inquiry from The Post-Star.

Stefanik is running for re-election in the 21st Congressional District against Democrat Mike Derrick, a retired Army colonel from Peru, in Clinton County, and Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello, a bread company owner and political activist from Hudson Falls.
