“I couldn’t be more grateful for the outpouring of support. I look forward to bringing real representation to Upstate and the North Country,” Boyajian said.

According to the news release, Boyajian built a campaign team, attended dozens of events, launched a website and built a social media presence to aid in fundraising.

“People are upset about Elise Stefanik’s record and the inability of Congress to get things done. They are donating because they are demanding change in Washington, starting with Stefanik,” he said.

Boyajian is seeking the Democratic line in a crowded field against Katie Wilson of Keene, Patrick Nelson of Stillwater, Emily Martz of Saranac Lake, Ron Kim of Queensbury and Tedra Cobb of Canton.

Russell Finley of Lisbon will challenge Stefanik for the Republican line and Steve Krieg of Plattsburgh will seek the independent line.
