Democratic Congressional candidate Aaron G. Woolf is set to tour businesses in Johnstown and Gloversville in Fulton County to today as part of his campaign for the 21st Congressional District seat currently held by Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh.
Mr. Woolf will be accompanied on his tour by Rep. Paul D. Tonko, D-Amsterdam. Rep. Tonko represents New Yorks 20th Congressional District and is expected to endorse Mr. Woolf during the trip.
Rep. Owens is not seeking reelection and Mr. Woolfs potential primary foe Stephen W. Burke, a Democrat from Macomb, had his ballot petitions invalidated last week by the commissioners of the state Board of Elections. Mr. Burke is due to appear at an 11:15 a.m. hearing to appeal the boards decision.
If the state Supreme Court rejects Mr. Burkes appeal, Mr. Woolf will not face a primary contest in the race.
Here is a schedule of the Fulton County stops as published by Mr. Woolfs campaign:
n 2:30-3 p.m. Shirley Luck Senior Center, 109 East Main St., Johnstown
