Republicans in Saratoga Springs have unanimously endorsed Gerard Amedio for the DA's post.
Amedio is challenging incumbent Republican Karen Heggen, who has served as DA since taking over from now-judge Jim Murphy in 2014.
Amedio, a former Colonie police officer, called it a "truly humbling honor."
A spokesman for Heggen’s campaign says they're not shocked or surprised, and feel very confident in Heggen’s ability to show that she’s been honest, ethical and capable.
