Doheny Announces Bid For Congress


Saying that the country needs to fundamentally change its direction in terms of job growth and tackling the deficit, Republican Matt Doheny announced his bid for Congress on 7 News Wednesday morning.

Doheny will face North Country Congressman Bill Owens next year, the second time the two face off against each other for the seat.

Owens will appear on 7 News Thursday morning between 6:30 and 7 a.m.

"Right now the direction of the country, unfortunately, hasn't fundamentally changed," Doheny said.

"We need change in the leadership at the top and we need change in leadership here in the North Country as well," he said.

"We have twin huge, tremendous challenges in the country right now: the lack of growth, which leads to jobs, and the overwhelming deficit approaching, screaming towards $15 trillion.

"We need to fundamentally change the direction and the policies that we're going to use to attack both those policies," he said.

Doheny said, "As a businessman I've been out there on the front lines of capitalism dealing with turning around companies, funding businesses, understanding how businesses work.

"We need businesspeople like myself to drive growth. With only growth, you'll have the job creation we sorely need around the country and in the North Country.

Owens will appear on 7 News Thursday morning between 6:30 and 7 a.m.
