Buffalo, NY – There is now a fourth candidate seeking the Democratic party nomination in the 26th congressional district. Erie County Legislator Kathy Konst of Lancaster officially announced Wednesday.

Konst joins a race that already includes Akron businessman Jack Davis, endorsed Democrat Jonathan Powers and Amherst attorney Alice Kryzan. Davis, who has run and lost in this district twice previously, is pledging to spend $3 million of his own money this time.

Konst says she believes she can win with much less.
