Looking Ahead to November 2014

On Sunday, Sean Eldridge announced that he was running for Congress, challenging Chris Gibson to represent the 19th Congressional District. Eldridge is the founder of Hudson River Ventures, a small business investment fund that has provided support for such Hudson Valley businesses as Bread Alone, Gigi Hudson Valley Catering, and Chatham Brewing. He is married to Chris Hughes, a Facebook co-founder who is now the publisher and editor in chief of The New Republic.

Eldridge released this video to announce his candidacy. The response to Eldridge's announcement, issued by Gibson spokewoman Stephanie Valle, is quoted in Nathan Mayberg's article in today's Register-Star: "Eldridge declares candidacy for Gibson's seat." The New York Times article referred to by Valle is this one: "Young, Rich and Relocating Yet Again in Hunt for Political Office."
