A Young Republican Goes for the McHugh Seat, Seriously

ALBANY—Joshua Lynch is 26, but there is nothing cutesy about his bid for John McHugh’s House seat.
“My reception has been pretty good,” said Lynch, the youngest of nine people currently seeking the Republican nomination to succeed McHugh, who has been recruited to serve in the Obama administration. “I think it’s a center-right district, and I think it’s ripe for a younger candidate with a lot of energy who can articulately talk about issues.”
But Lynch is not simply some precocious hometown boy (he graduated from Madrid-Waddington High School in 2001 and St. Lawrence University in 2005). He has extensive ties and experience in Washington.
