Claudia TenneyClaudia Tenney was first elected to serve as a member of the United States House of Representatives on November 8, 2016, after winning one of the most expensive races in the nation. As a freshman member of the 115th Congress, she served on the House Financial Services Committee. She currently serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.

Claudia was elected to the House of Representatives for a second time in November 2020 in what was yet again among the most expensive and competitive congressional races in the country.

Prior to her election in November 2016, Claudia served as a member of the New York State Assembly. She was first elected to the Assembly on November 2, 2010.

Claudia is an accomplished attorney and longtime small business owner. Claudia was the co-owner and legal counsel to Mid-York Press, Inc., a commercial printing and manufacturing firm started by her grandfather in 1946. Mid-York Press currently employs nearly 70 people in the Chenango County community of Sherburne. Claudia also maintained a private law practice in Clinton, New York.

Claudia graduated from Colgate University and the Taft College of Law at the University of Cincinnati. She is admitted to the bar in New York, Connecticut and Florida. She also is admitted to all federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court. Prior to opening her private practice, Claudia was a partner in the Utica-area law firm of Groben, Gilroy, Oster, and Saunders.

In 1997, Claudia established Tenney Media Group and served as its publisher and corporate counsel. Tenney Media Group, also based in Clinton, published and printed free community newspapers founded by Claudia’s parents and grandparents — the Mid-York Weekly and the Pennysaver. These publications covered three Central New York counties with eight separate weekly editions and had a circulation exceeding 100,000 households. This division was sold to Gannett in 2004.

Claudia is the daughter of the late Honorable John R. Tenney, who served as a Justice of the Supreme Court of New York in the Fifth Judicial District from 1969 through 2003, and the mother of U.S. Naval Academy graduate Trey Cleary, who served as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps.

I’m committed to supporting policies that increase competition and connectivity. Every New Yorker needs to have access to a robust marketplace of broadband options. In addition, we must lay the groundwork for new technologies, such as 5G, that promise connectivity for a lower cost. To accomplish these objectives, I am supporting a package of bills in Congress that will deliver real results if passed. My plan unleashes private sector innovation to foster competition and bring costs down while boosting resources for rural and underserved communities.
When the Founding Fathers ratified the Bill of Rights on December 15th, 1791, they included the Second Amendment to ensure every American had “the right… to keep and bear Arms.” They went on to affirm that this right “shall not be infringed.” For more than 200 years, sportsmen, hunters, and lawful gun owners have embraced our Second Amendment rights, which we all share as Americans.
My priorities are to support law enforcement and bring our communities back together. We must move beyond the divisive and damaging rhetoric, mend the relationships between police and the communities they serve, and give our police officers the legal protections and tools they need to safely and effectively do their job. To accomplish these objectives, I will work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Below are bills in Congress I support to advance real solutions.
America is a nation founded on a framework of lofty and enlightened values.

America’s veterans have put so much on the line to defend our great Nation and safeguard our freedoms. As the mother of a Marine, I understand the sacrifices that are made by our service members and their families each day. That’s why one of my top priorities in Congress is to ensure every American servicemember and veteran is well-equipped and properly supported, whether they are serving actively or returning to civilian life.

Every month I will be holding virtual seminars for residents of New York’s 24th Congressional District, local elected officials, and other interested stakeholders to receive updates and information directly from federal agencies and offices in Washington and around the country. There are so many existing federal resources and programs available to our community and I am committed to making sure you have the information to fully utilize them. Below you will find an archive of seminars from previous months.

The agriculture industry is the backbone of our region and has driven our economy for generations.

Over the past two and a half years the Biden administration’s terrible foreign policy has brought U.S. leadership on the international stage to an all-time low. As the mother of a Marine officer and former member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I understand the importance of American leadership on the global stage. We must return to the model of former President Ronald Reagan, who understood that peace through strength makes America stronger.

Since I was elected to public office, my mission has always been to put New York taxpayers first. For America to remain competitive and free, our nation needs a straightforward tax code that encourages work, allows Americans to keep more of their earnings, and establishes competitive rates for employers. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which passed with my support in 2017, was the most significant tax reform legislation signed into law since Ronald Reagan signed the Tax Reform Act of 1986. This overhaul of the U.S.

Our nation is currently facing a humanitarian and national security crisis at the Southern Border that must be addressed. As Americans continue to bear the social and economic burdens of President Biden’s failed policies, like skyrocketing inflation and exorbitant gas prices, it continues to be a free-for-all on the Southern Border. We are now on a path to over two million illegal immigrants crossing into the country this year under President Biden.

Since President Biden took office, sky-high energy prices have burdened far too many New York families, making it unaffordable for many. The Biden administration blames the energy crisis on Vladimir Putin and America’s energy producers. In reality, it’s the result of a failed approach that pursues unattainable green-energy goals instead of unleashing American Energy Independence. If this approach continues, costs will keep skyrocketing while dependence on foreign sources increases.

Wikipedia

Claudia L. Tenney (born February 4, 1961) is an American attorney and politician serving as the U.S. representative for New York’s 24th congressional district since 2023. Previously, she represented the 22nd district from 2017 to 2019 and from 2021 to 2023, and sat in the New York State Assembly from 2011 to 2016. A member of the Republican Party, Tenney is an outspoken supporter of former president Donald Trump.

In 2014, she challenged incumbent U.S. Representative Richard L. Hanna in the Republican primary and lost. Tenney was elected to Congress in 2016 after Hanna retired. In 2018, Tenney’s unsuccessful race against Democrat Anthony Brindisi attracted national attention due to its competitiveness and controversial public statements Tenney had made earlier that year. Tenney’s rematch against Brindisi in 2020 was even closer, leading to a lengthy recount. By the time the judge overseeing the recount ruled in Tenney’s favor, the 117th United States Congress had been in session for a month.

Early life and education

Tenney was born and raised in New Hartford, New York. Her parents were Cynthia and New York State Supreme Court Justice John R. Tenney. She attended New Hartford High School, where she played basketball and curling and competed in horseback riding.[1] She has a B.A. from Colgate University and a J.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Early career

Early in her career, Tenney was the only American employed by the Consulate General of Yugoslavia. She acted as intermediary between ABC Sports and the Yugoslavian government leading up to the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.[2]

Tenney was a co-owner of Mid-York Press, a commercial printing company started by her mother’s family in 1946. Mid-York Press is in Sherburne, in Chenango County.[3]

Tenney maintained a private law practice in Clinton. Before owning her own firm, she was a partner at the Utica-area law firm of Groben, Gilroy, Oster and Saunders.[2]

In January 2001, Tenney began co-hosting Common Cents, a radio and television program that aired weekly across Oneida and most of Herkimer County. In February 2010, she began co-hosting “First Look” on WIBX 950 Radio.[4]

Early political involvement

In 2002, New York State Assemblyman David R. Townsend Jr. won reelection and asked Tenney to become his legal counsel and Chief of Staff. Though she was going through a divorce at the time, she agreed to take the positions part-time so she could continue operating her law practice and her family-owned newspaper.[5]

In 2009, Tenney ran for Oneida County Surrogate Court Judge as a Republican against incumbent Democrat Louis Gigliotti. She received 45% of the vote to Gigliotti’s 55%.[6]

New York State Assembly

After Townsend launched a campaign for Oneida County Sheriff in 2010, Tenney decided to run for his Assembly seat. She defeated Oneida County Legislator George Joseph in the September Republican primary and was unopposed in the November general election,[7][8] becoming the first woman to represent the district.[9]

Tenney represented the 115th Assembly District from 2011 to 2013 and the 101st Assembly District from 2013 to 2017.[10] In 2011, Tenney voted against the Marriage Equality Act.[11] In 2012, Tenney was one of 18 cosponsors of the Internet Protection Act, a bill intended to fight online bullying, which did not pass.[12][13][14][15] Also in 2012, the Conservative Party of New York State gave her an award for being the state’s most conservative legislator.[16] She voted against the 2013 gun control law known as the NY SAFE Act, which she called an “assault on upstaters.”[17] In 2014, the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) claimed Tenney had missed 480 votes, the third-highest number of any Assembly member.[18] WRVO, a National Public Radio affiliate in Oswego, fact-checked NYPIRG’s claim and found that she had a 95% attendance record from 2011 to 2016 and had missed 6% of the votes taken during that period.[19]

According to Syracuse.com, “Tenney was a vocal critic of a revenue-sharing deal the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona signed with New York state in 2013, in which the Oneida Indian National won exclusive rights to run casinos in a 10-county region of Central New York.” Later, a Super PAC “with ties to the Oneida Indian nation” opposed her 2014 and 2016 congressional bids.[20] Tenney voted against the 2013 state constitutional amendment that authorized full-fledged casinos on non-Indian lands.[21]

U.S. House of Representatives

Elections

2014

In 2014, Tenney ran for the Republican nomination for New York’s 22nd congressional district, losing the June 24 primary to incumbent Republican Richard L. Hanna by six points, 47–53%.[22] Tenney ran to the right of Hanna.[23]

2016

Tenney again sought election to Congress from the 22nd District in the 2016 elections. Hanna retired weeks later, denying that the prospect of a primary rematch with Tenney was a factor.[24] Tenney was endorsed by the Conservative Party of New York State, the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the Citizens United Victory Fund,[25] and New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms PAC.[26] Hanna did not endorse her.[27]

Tenney won a three-way Republican primary on June 28, 2016.[28] She defeated Democrat Kim Myers and Independent/Reform Party candidate Martin Babinec in the November general election with 44% of the vote to Myers’s 39% and Babinec’s 13%.[29][30]

2018

On March 3, 2018, Tenney confirmed that she would seek reelection in 2018.[31] The Democrats nominated New York State Assemblymember Anthony Brindisi of nearby Utica, who had served alongside Tenney in the Assembly.[32] Brindisi outraised Tenney, ending the year with $581,851 to Tenney’s $573,486.[33] In March 2018, The Hill wrote that Tenney was “embracing President Trump’s confrontational style.”[34] In August, Trump spoke at a fundraiser for Tenney in Utica, the first time a president had visited the Mohawk Valley in nearly 70 years.[35]

On election night, Brindisi led by 1,293 votes.[36] By November 20, Brindisi’s lead grew to over 3,900 votes, exceeding the number of outstanding absentee ballots.[37][38][39] On November 21, Tenney told local radio station WUTQ-FM that it was unlikely she would overtake Brindisi, and agreed to help with the transition, but said that she wanted to see every ballot counted.[40] She conceded a week later, on November 28.[41] Her defeat made New York’s 22nd congressional district the most pro-Trump congressional district in the nation flipped by a Democrat in 2018.[42]

2020

Tenney sought election to Congress in New York’s 22nd congressional district once again in 2020.[43] She won the Republican primary and challenged incumbent Anthony Brindisi in the general election. As of December 2, Tenney held a 12-vote lead in the general election; the race was one of two U.S. House races that remained unresolved.[44] On December 8, a New York state judge ordered a districtwide recanvass of all ballots, including provisional ballots and disputed ballots that were not included in the original count.[45]

On February 5, 2021, Tenney was declared the winner of the election by 109 votes.[46] She appeared to get a boost from President Trump, who won the district with 54.7% of the vote.[47] She assumed office on February 11, 2021, nearly a month after most of her colleagues were sworn in.[48]

2022

Initial redistricting maps split NY-22 between several different districts.[49] Tenney announced that she would run in the new 23rd district, which covers the western part of the Southern Tier. Although Tenney did not live in that district, she pointed out that her family’s business was based in Chenango County.[50] However, the initial redistricting maps were challenged in court and replaced with maps drawn by a special master. Tenney announced that she would instead run in the 24th district, which runs along the Lake Ontario coast: she does not reside in that district either.[51] She won the Republican primary with 54% of the vote,[52] and handily won election in the strongly Republican district with 64% of the vote.[53]

Contributors and PACs

During the 2021-22 campaign fundraising period, Tenney received $28,750 from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobbying group, which was her top contributor.[54] During the same period, she received approximately $2 million from a combination of large individual contributions and PACs, accounting for 63.64% of total fundraising. Tenney did not self-finance.[55]

Tenure and political positions

In a radio interview shortly after the February 2018 Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, Tenney baselessly claimed that “so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats”.[56][57][58] In a follow-up interview, she said, “This problem occurs across all sectors, with all types of people. It isn’t just Republicans who commit all these terrible crimes. It is across all sectors and it is people who are typically mentally unstable who are committing a lot of the crimes that we’re seeing.”[59]

When reports emerged that Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson‘s office had ordered a $31,000 dining room table set with taxpayer funds, Tenney blamed the “deep state” for the expenditure, adding, “I know that Ben Carson did not order that table. It has nothing to do with him. He comes from, you know, poverty.”[60][61]

In March 2017, Tenney voted to reverse the FCC privacy rule that blocked ISPs from selling customer browsing history without customers’ permission.[62][63][64]

In November 2017, Tenney introduced the No Pensions for Corrupt Politicians Act, which would “close a loophole that has allowed corrupt members of Congress to collect federal pensions after they are convicted of crimes.”[65]

In April 2018, Tenney signed a letter calling for criminal investigations into a number of former Obama administration officials and high-ranking Justice Department officials. The letter accused former FBI Director James Comey of leaking classified information, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of concealing payments for the Steele Dossier, and Loretta Lynch of threatening whistle-blowers who had anti-Clinton information. The letter also accused former acting attorney general Sally Yates, former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, former acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, former senior counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page of criminal wrongdoing.[66]

Tenney was a member of the Climate Solutions Caucus.[67] In 2016, she cast doubt on the scientific consensus on climate change, saying, “The science is not determined. It’s not certain.”[68] In 2017, she supported President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Agreement.[69][70]

In March 2021, along with all other Senate and House Republicans, she voted against the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.[71]

At a January 5, 2021 rally in Georgia, President Donald Trump falsely claimed the votes in Tenney’s race against Anthony Brindisi were being counted fraudulently (at the time, the Tenney-Brindisi race was the nation’s only uncalled 2020 congressional race). Tenney shared a video of Trump’s speech and did not challenge or dispute Trump’s claims.[72] In February 2021, following the U.S. Capitol attack, Tenney said she did not know whether she would have voted to count the electoral votes from the states Biden won in 2020,[73] but that she would have voted against Trump’s second impeachment. In May 2021, Tenney falsely suggested that the 2020 presidential election might have been “stolen”; there is no evidence of any meaningful fraud in the election.[74]

Health care

On May 4, 2017, Tenney voted for the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill that passed the House of Representatives and died in the Senate.[75] It would have rewritten many regulations of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and eliminated the individual mandate and federal protections for preexisting conditions in favor of high-risk pools.[76][77] Tenney also voted for a portion of the AHCA that targeted Medicaid funding by prohibiting Medicaid-related property taxes. The provision applied only to New York State, and only to counties outside of New York City.[78][79] Tenney argued the overall bill would lower insurance costs, including insurance premiums and related taxes.[78]

In 2021, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Tenney opposed the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees, calling it “unconstitutional”.[80]

Islamic Republic of Iran

Tenney opposes misogynistic laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran and on January 9, 2023, introduced a bill in the House to condemn its government, “H.Con.Res.7 – Condemning the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses against the brave women and men of Iran peacefully demonstrating in more than 133 cities”.[81] The bill cites the Mahsa Amini protests.

Taxes

Tenney voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017,[82][83] which Trump signed into law in December 2017.[84] The law’s main provisions include a reduction of the top personal income tax rate from 39.6% to 37%, the elimination of the ACA’s individual mandate, the limitation of the state and local tax deduction to $10,000 of taxable income, an increase in the standard deduction, and a reduction in the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%.[85] The reduction of the corporate tax rate is permanent; the personal income tax cuts are temporary.[86] In October 2017, Tenney joined other members of Congress and Ivanka Trump at an event to advocate for doubling the child tax credit;[87][88] this provision was included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.[85]

LGBT rights

Tenney was one of the 14 co-sponsors of the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act”, which would make giving transgender minors gender-affirming care a class C felony.[89]

Tenney was the sole member of New York’s House delegation to vote against the Respect for Marriage Act, which would codify Obergefell v. Hodges.[90]

In the fall of 2022, after an attacker fractured the skull of Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a number of Republican politicians circulated a baseless allegation that the attacker was a male prostitute—among them, Tenney, who posted on her Twitter account, with the comment “LOL”, a doctored photograph of a group of young men holding hammers next to a gay pride flag.[91][92][93]

Gun control

In 2017, Tenney co-sponsored legislation that would substantially eliminate National Firearms Act restrictions on obtaining or possessing gun silencers. After the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, she said she still planned to support the bill.[94]

Immigration

Tenney sponsored H.R. 6202, the American Tech Workforce Act of 2021, introduced by Representative Jim Banks. The legislation would have established a wage floor for the high-skill H-1B visa program, thereby significantly reducing employer dependence on the program. The bill would have also eliminated the Optional Practical Training program that allows foreign graduates to stay and work in the United States. This bill died in committee.[95]

Personal life

Tenney is a resident of New Hartford, New York. She and her former husband, Wayne Cleary Jr., have one son, Wayne “Trey” Ralph Cleary III.[96] In 2009, the younger Cleary received an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy.[97] He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps in May 2013.[98]

Tenney is a Presbyterian.[99]
