Eldridge files 6,000 signatures for Congress run

KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) Democratic congressional candidate Sean Eldridge says he has collected enough signatures to make it on the ballot in the Hudson Valley.

Eldridge is challenging two-term Republican Rep. Chris Gibson in New York's 19th District. Eldridge says Monday he filed nearly 6,000 signatures for the Democratic ballot line, far more than required.
