Congressman John Katko (R - NY 24) announced his endorsement of John DeFrancisco for governor on Wednesday afternoon.

"It is my privilege to endorse John DeFrancisco as the next Governor for the State of New York," Rep. Katko said in a release.

Rep. Katko said in a statement that DeFrancisco has worked across party lines in Albany to fight for Central New York's best interests. The congressman said he believes DeFrancisco is a bipartisan voice for Central New York families and has been a champion for Upstate New York.

"Now, John is running for Governor so that all of New York State may benefit from his leadership.” Katko said.

DeFrancisco is seeking the Republican Party's nomination to run against Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo, who is seeking a third term in 2018
