Sen. Charles Schumer today visited Schenectady County Community College today, making it the last stop on his yearly visit to all 62 counties in New York.
Schumer made the pledge to visit all 62 counties each year after his election to the Senate in 1998, which was aided by his ability to do well in upstate New York against GOP incumbent Al D’Amato.
It’s the 12th year in a row that Schumer visited all the state’s counties. It was also a feat accomplished this year by incoming Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who visited all the counties during the campaign — sometimes several a day.
Schumer, a Democrat, also used the visit to tout his accomplishments this year, another annual ritual when he wraps up the tour.
