  • There was a traffic jam at 3:30 Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot at Remington Arms as workers left at the end of their shift.
    And both candidates for the 22nd Congressional District were there to shake as many hands as they could in the final hours of their race.
    Democrat Lamb, of Dryden, and Republican Hanna, of Barneveld, are facing off for the seat, which was created in the 2012 redistricting process.
    Hanna currently represents the 24th District, which will cease to exist at the end of this year.
    With the polls closing at 9 p.m., Hanna and Lamb took the opportunity to remind the workers to go vote. Then a phalanx of campaign staffers offered the employees literature about their candidates.
    Remington worker Robert Griffin, of Dolgeville, said he was voting for Hanna. Why?
    “I’m basically a die hard Republican,” he said.
    Larry Baylor, of Herkimer, declined to say who would get his vote, but did disclose his top priority.
    “Keeping jobs in the Valley is the main thing for me,” he said, pointing to the massive factory he had just left.
