Despite the Republican Party nominating Chris Jacobs for the 27th congressional district special election, Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw and Fox News contributor Beth Parlato are both still in the race for the seat.
Parlato said this decision does not reflect the voice of the voters of NY-27.
Mychajliw said he'll run in a June Republican primary, trying to secure the party's nomination for November when the seat will be up for election again.
Mychajliw said he'll let true conservatives choose their nominee.
For the special election in April, Jacobs has received a key endorsement from Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.
She represents northern New York, is an honorary co-chair for President Trump's 2020 campaign in New York and is also a member of the White House impeachment defense team.
