Michael Madigan files Republican, Conservative and Independent Petitions
Grand Island, New York:
Candidate Michael Madigan hand-delivered petitions for the 26th Congressional District and successfully filed them with the New York State Board of Elections in Albany, with more than enough signatures to secure three lines on the November 6th ballot against incumbent Brian Higgins.
“This was a huge challenge to get done and we not only got it done, we far exceeded the minimum signature requirements. I am deeply humbled by the overwhelming grassroots support, and thankful for the intense hard work all our volunteers put in over the past two weeks,” said Madigan.
Madigan has received endorsements from the Republican, Conservative and Independent Parties. Securing these lines was crucial, as this proves Madigan has the overwhelming support of not just Republicans and Conservatives, but of the reform minded people of the Independent Party.
