Lopez Eyes Retiring Gibson's House Seat
As has been long expected, New York State Assemblyman Pete Lopez, a Republican from Schoharie, is the latest candidate to join the field to replace retiring Congressman Chris Gibson. Lopez, who represents the 102nd district, has been in the Assembly since 2007. Lopez once worked as a staffer for former gubernatorial candidate John Faso, who is also seeking the 19th district seat. Lopez discussed his potential candidacy with WAMC.
