Hanna was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2010. Tenney, a state Assemblywoman, is challenging him for the party nomination.

There will be no Democratic Party candidate on the general election ballot. Regardless of the outcome of the Republican primary, Hanna’s name will appear on the November ballot on the Independence Party line.

For months, Hanna declined invitations to debate Tenney before the June 24 primary.

Both candidates discussed campaign issues during separate interviews on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program on Wednesday.

Hanna, who was campaigning in the Binghamton area, spoke by phone and again turned down an opportunity to have a conversation with Tenney.

Tenney, who appeared in the studio minutes later, expressed her disappointment that Hanna would not agree to a single joint appearance before Republican voters head to the polls.
