Vice President Dick Cheney is heading to upstate New York next week to stump for a fellow Republican.
Cheney is scheduled to attend a fundraising event July 14th for state Senator Raymond Meier in the race for the 24th Congressional District now held by Representative Sherwood Boehlert. Boehlert, a New Hartford Republican who has held the seat since 1982, announced his decision not to seek re-election in March.
Another possible GOP candidate is Robert Camera of Geneva. The Democratic candidate is Michael Arcuri, the Oneida County district attorney.
The 24th Congressional District covers parts of 11 counties in central New York. The U-shaped district runs from the Utica area in the east, south to the Binghamton area and then northwest to the Auburn-Seneca Falls area.
