Republican Matt Doheny announced Wednesday he will run for New York’s 21st Congressional District seat.

This will be the third try for Doheny, a 43-year-old businessman from Watertown.
“I was honored that more than 120,000 voters chose me to represent them during the last election,” said Doheny. “Many told me they appreciated my real-world experience in tackling tough problems and working together with competing interests to find common ground.  That approach and real-world experience is sorely needed in a Congress too full of career insiders.”

Former Bush White House aide Elise Stefanik is also seeking the Republican nomination.

Local Democrats have endorsed documentary filmmaker Aaron Woolf to run for the seat being vacated by Congressman Bill Owens.  

The primary is June 24.
