“Like my father before me, I recognize the value and importance of public service and am confident I can make a difference in the state Assembly. We have a lot of work to do, but I know I am up to the challenge,” says Libous.
If elected, Libous says he wants to make New York more affordable for young families. He also wants to impose term limits. Libous will be running against current Assemblyman Clifford Crouch in the republican primary. Crouch is seeking his 13th term.
Last week, Crouch announced his run for re-election for a second time, surrounded by GOP chairperson's from three counties. He agreed it was to send a message in case of a primary opponent. 
In response to the news of Libous entering the race, Crouch released the following statement:
Serving the people of our region in the State Assembly has been the one of the greatest privileges of my life. But there’s much more work to be done. I’m asking the voters to keep me working for them so I can continue advocating for common-sense solutions to create jobs, keep a lid on taxes, and ensure our Constitutional Rights are protected. I’m proud to have the support of Senator Akshar, Senator Seward, all Four Republican County Chairs, and more than 50 local elected officials across Broome, Chenango, Delaware and Otsego Counties.
The Chair of the Broome County Republican Committee is throwing his support behind Crouch. The following statement is from Chairman Bijoy Datta.
Cliff Crouch has been a principled and effective fighter for the Southern Tier as our Republican Assemblyman. I’m proud to back his re-election campaign and am confident that he’ll enjoy strong support from Broome County Republicans and voters from every political background this fall.
