BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- A peaceful protest in Binghamton -- people gathered outside the Holiday Inn, where Congresswoman Claudia Tenney was set to host a fundraiser.
Her main guest was Congressman Devin Nunes from California's 22nd District -- he's also the House Intelligence Committee chairman.
Tenney is seeking re-election in November, and some feel that she is not representing the best interests of her 22nd Congressional District.
One protestor says he tried to go into the event, but was told he would be arrested if he did. While another was simply there to make sure that things didn’t get out of hand in his community.
"I would say that Broome County should be an example to some of the places like Portland, and those out West where demonstrations are turning violent and more violent every day,” said James Davis, a protester.
"That just shows me what I already knew, that Claudia Tenney wasn’t ready to listen to her constituents. She doesn’t want to hear from us,” said Benjamin Reynolds, another protester.
The protest was peaceful and no arrests were made. Just last week, Congresswoman Tenney had a visit from the president's daughter and senior advisor, Ivanka Trump.
Tenney is running against Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi this November.
