ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)- After losing the race last November, Democrat Jen Lunsford is preparing to run for State Senate yet again.

Lunsford is launching a 2020 campaign for New York's 55th Senate District. The seat is currently held by Republican Rich Funke. 


When polls closed in 2018, about 3,700 votes separated the two.

In a Facebook post, Lunsford said that she believes that the added attention of a Presidential election year will put her in a better position to win.
