Westchester and Rockland Republicans have nominated Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin as their candidate to challenge Rep. Nita Lowey in the 17th Congressional District race in November.
Party members gathered Tuesday at Clarkstown Town Hall in New City to hold their convention and nominate Carvin, who announced he was seeking the nod just the day before.
Lowey, a Democrat, has served for the past 24 years.
The new 17th C.D. covers all of Rockland County and most of Westchester.
