The 22nd district consists of Chenango, Madison, Oneida, and Cortland counties, as well as parts of Herkimer, Broome, Oswego, and Tioga counties, according to The Syracuse Post-Standard.

Hanna, a two-term congressman and business owner, currently serves on congressional committees for transportation and infrastructure, small business, and energy and commerce. Hanna often breaks party lines, sometimes voting with Democrats on issues many Republicans vote against.

On The Issues, a website which tracks “every political leader on every issue,” puts Hanna in the “moderate” category.
