“Hi, this is retired New York Yankee pitcher Tommy John.
“One thing I learned from playing is to make it to the big leagues you need to work hard and have a plan. That’s why I’m calling on you to vote for my good friend Matt Doheny.
“Matt has what it takes to make a difference for you in Congress. He is a tireless worker and he has a real plan to bring good jobs back to the North Country.
“So tomorrow hit a grand slam, get off the bench, vote for the North Country and vote for Matt Doheny.”
Mr. Doheny has been endorsed by the New York state Independence Party and Ms. Stefanik has been endorsed by the state Conservative Party.
The winner of the Republican primary will go on to face Democrat Aaron G. Woolf and Green Party candidate Matthew J. Funiciello.
