Republican congressional candidate Matt Doheny will vote for Mitt Romney on Nov. 6, and Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Owens will vote for President Barack Obama.
Doheny, a Watertown businessman, issued a succinct statement last week stating that he endorses Romney in his bid to unseat Obama. Doheny also pushed Owens, of Plattsburgh, to tell voters where he stands.
"Who is my opponent supporting?" Doheny asked in a press release.

Doheny has been pressuring Owens to tell voters if he's voting for Obama, even though Owens had made statements indicating that he supports the president. In an interview with the Enterprise on Wednesday, Owens left little doubt.
"As I've said multiple times, the only person standing up between the two candidates for the middle class is Obama," he said, "and as long as he continues to do that, I'm going to support him."
