Race for 19th Congressional District officially begins Thursday

Sean Eldridge is taking a position most politicians have not.  In the race for the 19th Congressional seat the 27 year old Democrat is not accepting any financial support from PACS or big business.

"Corporate interests are dominating in Washington and the voice of the middle class families is drowned out by corporate money and special interests," explained Eldridge, outside his Kingston campaign headquarters in Kingston on Thursday.

Eldridge's opponent, two term Republican Chris Gibson, claims that's an easy give for Eldridge.  Eldridge is a multi-millionaire who Gibson acknowledges will outspend him.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The Rev. Monsignor Edward Scharfenberger of New York City has been ordained as the 10th bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Albany.

Hundreds of white-robed priests and bishops from across New York and New England attended the Ordination Mass at the gothic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception near Albany's capitol complex Thursday afternoon.

Scharfenberger was appointed by Pope Francis to succeed Bishop Howard Hubbard, who was the longest-tenured bishop of a single diocese in the nation when he resigned on Oct. 31, when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 75. He served 37 years.

Scharfenberger, who is 65, has held a number of parish and administrative positions in New York City.

The Albany diocese has about 330,000 parishioners in 14 counties.
