Republican Congressman Richard Hanna will face a primary challenge in his bid for re-election in 2016.
Republican State Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney has announced that she is seeking the Republican nomination to run for Congress Representing the 22nd District.
Hanna, a moderate Republican, has held the seat for four years.
Tenney challenged Hanna two years ago. She is a favorite among Tea Party voters.
Because it’s also a presidential election year, the 2016 primary will be held in June.
