Clarence, NY – Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced he has offered his endorsement and full support for Wendy Long, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate.

“Wendy Long is a candidate that truly understands the issues impacting New Yorkers and our fellow citizens throughout the country,” said Congressman Chris Collins.  

“When it comes to the issues of securing our borders, supporting small businesses, and bringing jobs back home from overseas, Wendy Long will stand strong with New Yorkers and ensure their voices are heard. I’m proud to support Wendy Long’s candidacy for the U.S. Senate.”

“I am deeply grateful to have Congressman Collins’s endorsement,” said Wendy Long, Republican Candidate for U.S. Senate. “Western New Yorkers of the 27th District are fortunate to have someone representing them who knows what it takes to create jobs, meet a payroll, and spur the kind of success and prosperity that our citizens deserve.  It’s a special honor for me to be endorsed by the first Congressman to endorse  our next President, Donald Trump.  They both love Western New York and have the know-how and the will to spur true economic growth and to secure our borders.  They just need a Senator who will work with them, instead of my opponent who is the face of the failed, corrupt, taxing, spending, over-regulating, open-borders Establishment.”

Congressman Collins was elected in 2012 and reelected in 2014 to represent the 27th District of New York. The district includes 105 towns spread out over all or part of Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston, and Ontario counties.
