Faso and Teachout vie for Hudson Valley seat in Congress

One of the tightest congressional races in the country is happening in the Hudson Valley. Republican John Faso versus Democrat Zephyr Teachout. They're both vying for the seat in New York's 19th Congressional District being vacated by retiring Republican Rep. Chris Gibson. Both candidates are veteran campaigners looking to rebound from past defeats.

Faso says he wants to get the economy moving, see broad tax reform for individuals and businesses, and attack the national debt. Faso has a long career in politics. He served in the state Assembly and made a run for governor in 2006. He was defeated by Eliot Spitzer.

Teachout was a law professor at Fordham and also made a run for governor in 2014 but lost to incumbent Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary. 

In this race, Teachout's main focus is to stop the off-shoring of jobs. After a recent WikiLeaks hack of Clinton campaign emails, Teachout has been accused of silencing her support for Bernie Sanders if Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand agreed to campaign on her behalf. Teachout denies these claims.

Critics have accused Faso of flip-flopping on his support of Donald Trump. He told me he wasn't voting for Hillary Clinton but wouldn't tell me if he supports trump or if he'll vote for him.

In Kingston, we spoke with voters from the district where there is a clear divide.

A few issues both candidates agree on. They both say a woman should have the right to choose. They also both believe people should be able to own guns responsibly. And the last thing they agree on is that whoever you support, make sure you go out and vote on November 8.
