Bronson gets Working Families and Citizen Action endorsement

Elections Local

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Assemblyman Harry Bronson received the endorsement of the Working Families Party as well as Citizens Action of New York.

The Democrat is running for re-election in the 138th district, which covers portions of Rochester, Chili and Henrietta.

This comes after he narrowly lost the Monroe County Democratic Committee’s designation to challenger Alex Yudelson.

Bronson said he’d be proud to represent both of the progressive parties.

“It’s pretty powerful to get the endorsement of the Working Families Party and in addition to that to get the endorsement of Citizens Action These are two groups — one a political group and one an activist group — they’re two groups that are pushing forward progressive pieces of legislation,” Bronson said.

Bronson and Yudelson are also competing against Republican Peter Vazquez. New York’s primary election will be in April.
