YONKERS - New York Sen. Charles Schumer was in the Hudson Valley Sunday to endorse two county executive candidates.

Schumer says increasing jobs and growing the middle class are the two most important issues in the region, which is why he says he's endorsing democrats Noam Bramson for Westchester County executive and David Fried for the same seat in Rockland.

The senator started out stumping in Tappan and then continued in Yonkers. Fried says if elected, he'll lower taxes and boost tourism.

Fried's opponent, Republican Ed Day, says he is not worried about Schumer's endorsement, telling News 12 that what matters more are endorsements from voters.

In Yonkers, Bramson says the senator's backing proves something's wrong with the current administration. Schumer's support is coming on the heels of endorsements by former President Bill Clinton and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A spokesperson for Republican Rob Astorino told News 12, "The key endorsement we have is from the 64 percent of Westchester residents who say the county is moving in the right direction under Rob Astorino, according to the latest Marist poll."
