LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. – A new name has not only entered the race for the 22nd Congressional District seat but has already picked up a major endorsement.

Martin Babinec, from Little Falls, has secured the support of the Independence Party of New York. And his campaign touts him as the only candidate virtually guaranteed a ballot line for November.

Babinec founded Trinet which now brings in two billion dollars a year and has created more than 2500 high paying jobs.

On the Republican side of the race, Claudia Tenney, George Philips and Steve Wells. On the Democratic side: Dave Gordon and Kim Myers.
