NEWBURGH – Nan Hayworth has been out of office as a congresswoman for a little over two months now, but one would think she is still on the campaign trail.

The Republican one-term lawmaker continues to attend community and political events across the region.

“The results of an election don’t mean that I stopped caring about the Hudson Valley, about the cause for every single one of our citizens that made me run the first time,” she said. “It doesn’t make me support our friends and companions in our local party who worked so hard, so I am out there to show I care. I didn’t run for office just because it was about Nan being in Congress. I wanted to be a service in whatever way I could be.”

Hayworth said she has not ruled out another run for Congress next year. Political insiders have said she has told them privately that she would run again.

Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney (D- Cold Spring), meanwhile, is preparing for an attack by the GOP next year. He is sending out campaign e-mails to supporters thanking them for their loyalty. “Because of you, we’ll be ready for the GOP in 2014,” Maloney wrote in an e-mail on Tuesday.
