CAMBRIDGE, N.Y.—Don Boyajian, a third-generation Armenian American, has announced his candidacy for New York’s 21st Congressional District, representing the Adirondack Mountains and Thousand Islands regions of the Empire State.

Don Boyajian

If elected, he would be the third U.S. Representative of Armenian heritage serving in the U.S. House, joining Congresswoman Anna Eshooo (D-Calif.) and Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-Calif).

The grandchild of Armenian immigrants from Aintab, on his father’s side, and Palu, on his mother’s side, Don represents the third generation in his family to live and work in the U.S. During the Armenian Genocide era, his father’s family settled in Saratoga County, N.Y., where they operated a sheep farm, and his mother’s family put down roots in Providence, R.I.

He and his family are active in St. Peter Armenian Apostolic Church, where his mother recently received the Women’s Guild’s Woman of the Year Award.

Professionally, Don is an environmental and municipal attorney at Dreyer Boyajian LLP, a firm his father co-founded. Don graduated from Colgate University and Cornell Law School, where he clerked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office (NDNY), New York Office of the Attorney General (Environmental Protection Bureau), and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Don also served as a Legislative Aide in the U.S. Congress, where he focused on agriculture, natural resources, and energy policy.

Don, a Democrat, will face a primary election to win his party’s nomination, and then challenge incumbent Republican Elise Stefanik, who has no meaningful record of support for Armenian-American issues.

Sarah Palin endorsed Danny Tarkanian for U.S. Senate

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Danny Tarkanian for the U.S. Senate in Nevada, Breitbart News reports exclusively.

Tarkanian, who is of Armenian descent, announced his 2018 Republican primary challenge against incumbent Senator Heller for a U.S. Senate seat from Nevada in early August.

“Commonsense Conservatives in Nevada and across America need to unite and help win this critical fight. I strongly endorse Danny Tarkanian for the United States Senate and look forward to helping him win this important election,” Palin said in the statement endorsing Tarkanian.

Tarkanian in a statement of his own responded by thanking Palin.

Polling data on the race suggests that Tarkanian has a chance to topple Heller in Nevada, should he gain momentum moving into the next several months. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, however, is likely to fight as hard as he can to save Heller—but endorsements from major national conservative figures like Palin open the door to a potential upset.

Danny Tarkanian takes lead over Dean Heller in U.S. Senate race: poll

PanARMENIAN.Net - GOP U.S. Senate challenger Danny Tarkanian has blown past incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) per a new poll out of the state of Nevada, Breitbart News reports.

Tarkanian, who is of Armenian descent, announced his 2018 Republican primary challenge against Heller for a U.S. Senate seat from Nevada in early August.

Tarkanian, per the new poll from JMC Analytics, is up at 39 percent in the new survey. His lead towers eight points over the incumbent Heller’s 31 percent.

A whopping 31 percent are undecided between Heller and Tarkanian. Even so, when given the choice of Heller versus not Tarkanian, a majority of Republicans in Nevada—51 percent—want someone other than Heller, 31 percent would renominate Heller, and 18 percent are undecided.

The survey of 700 likely GOP voters in Nevada was conducted from Aug. 24 to Aug. 25 and has a margin of error of 3.7 percent with a 95 percent confidence interval.

Earlier, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Danny Tarkanian for the U.S. Senate in Nevada

He was interested in running a few years ago, Danny, he came with his wife and children to Badarak in Carson City, I put the fact that he was running in the news letter. We'll see how he does this time.

You'll never know unless you try. We have a very old established and anchored communities all around the US it's about time that they go into politics in big numbers and work within rather than begging others to do it for us. They should be supported by all regardless of their party affiliation whether you are Democrat or Republican.
