New York State Senator Daphne Jordan is ending her re-election campaign.

She announced Tuesday afternoon that she has made the decision to not actively campaign in Republican and Conservative primaries against incumbent James Tedisco. However, her name will still be on Republican and Conservative primary ballots – due to state election law.

Jordan’s reelection campaign was complicated by redistricting.

The new 44th District includes all of Saratoga County and the city of Schenectady and town of Niskayuna in Schenectady counties.

Sen. Tedisco represents 15 of the municipalities in the new district. Jordan represents nine.
