President Trump to stop in Utica on Monday

Posted: Updated:

(WBNG) -- The commander in chief will be in New York State on Monday.

According to the campaign office of United States Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-22), President Donald Trump will be in Utica on Monday for a fundraiser for the representative. Officials have not released details about the event. 

In a statement posted on the congresswoman's Twitter page, Claudia Tenney stated, "President Donald Trump's historic visit to the Mohawk Valley is symbolic of the importance he and I place on serving the forgotten people of upstate New York. I have worked alongside our President to deliver tax cuts to middle-income families, secure our border, revitalize our manufacturing industry, and bring back jobs to our region. We are honored to have President Trump's commitment to continuing to deliver real results for our region's hardworking families, small businesses, family farms and veterans."

12 News has reached out to the office of Rep. Tenney's challenger in November's general election, New York State 119th District Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi (D), which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

United States Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-21) also posted on her website the president will also make a stop Monday at Fort Drum to sign legislation.

“I am honored that President Trump has accepted my invitation to visit Fort Drum and the brave men and women of the 10th Mountain Division on Monday,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “As a Member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Chair of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, I am honored that the President will sign the historic National Defense Authorization Act in our district at Fort Drum. I am proud of the partnership with this Administration to begin rebuilding our military and the President’s visit is an important opportunity to highlight this achievement and to thank our men and women in uniform for their service. I look forward to welcoming President Trump to Fort Drum and continuing to work to ensure our troops have the resources they need to keep us safe.”

Congresswoman Stefanik wrote a letter to President Trump to Fort Drum back in March.
