I want to extend my congratulations to Kathy Hochul for her victory in New York's 26th Congressional District. Kathy and I both believe that we need to create jobs, grow our economy, and reduce the deficit in order to outcompete other nations and win the future. Kathy has shown, through her victory and throughout her career, that she will fight for the families and businesses in western New York, and I look forward to working with her when she gets to Washington.
The White House was obviously quite pleased with the NY-26 special election. The statement was emailed to reporters and posted at WhiteHouse.gov before Hochul even gave her victory speech.
