Chris Jacobs
Never-Trumper Not Right For NY-27

State Senator Chris Jacobs, a Never-Trumper with a history of supporting liberal policies, is running to replace Rep. Chris Collins in New York's 27th Congressional District which President Trump won by more than 24 points. From his support of higher taxes and radical environmental handouts to his campaign with Never-Trumper Bill Weld and refusal to back President Trump in 2016, Chris Jacobs isn’t a conservative and he’s wrong for New York’s 27th Congressional District.

Jacobs Refused To Endorse President Trump In 2016

During A 2016 Interview, Jacobs Was Asked Whether He Supports Donald Trump’s Candidacy To Which Jacobs Dodged The Question, Saying He Is “Running For State Office And That’s What All [His] Efforts Are Going On Right Now.” (YouTube)

Jacobs Served As Bill Weld’s Running Mate In A 2006 NY Gubernatorial Run; Weld, Another Never-Trumper, Is Running Against Trump In The Republican Presidential Primary
