The Watertown Daily Times editorial board endorsed Republican Matt Doheny for Congress today.
Mr. Doheny faces Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, on Nov. 6.
A Watertown resident, Mr. Doheny "has shown passion and fire to represent Northern New York in Congress. Having built a successful business career on Wall Street, he has ideas to improve the business climate of Northern New York and energy to implement them. He is young and has a lot to offer."
The editorial was kind to Mr. Owens, saying he "has represented the region faithfully and honorably. But Mr. Doheny’s business background, ideas and desire to spur economic resurgence in Northern New York make him the stronger candidate."
