Saratoga County resident Christina Sofia-Comer, president of CSC Capital LLC, has been named state fundraiser for Ms. Stefanik’s campaign.

According to a news release, CSC Capital has raised tens of millions of dollars for Republican candidates and causes over the last 15 years.

Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, announced two weeks ago he would not seek re-election, citing a desire to spend more time with family.
