Race for 19th Congressional District officially begins Thursday

Sean Eldridge is taking a position most politicians have not.  In the race for the 19th Congressional seat the 27 year old Democrat is not accepting any financial support from PACS or big business.

"Corporate interests are dominating in Washington and the voice of the middle class families is drowned out by corporate money and special interests," explained Eldridge, outside his Kingston campaign headquarters in Kingston on Thursday.
