Help Elect Scott Murphy This Weekend.

This Weekend.
Help Elect Scott Murphy.
Opportunities to Help.
Support the Campaign.

It is time again for Columbia County Democrats and friends to come together and work as hard as we can to elect SCOTT MURPHY for CONGRESS for the seat vacated by now Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the 20th Congressional District!! We all worked very hard for a very long time to turn this district blue- we cannot let it slip back into Republican hands!!

Many of you got to meet Scott for the first time during his swing through Columbia County last weekend. In the past few days he has
secured the Independence Party and the Working Families Party lines and been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, NYSUT, PEF, CSEA, and many other unions. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer have come out to campaign for him.

The Republican National Committee and conservative PACs have made this race a national priority. They hope that Jim Tedisco, who does not even live in the district, can win back the district for the Republicans. They have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in TV and radio ads to attack Murphy. If Tedisco is elected, he will use his platform to denounce the new administration and the Democratically controlled Congress just as he has done for years in New York.


The Special Election will be held on March 31, less than four weeks from now.
Increasing Murphy's name recognition and turnout is key to winning.

This weekend the Scott Murphy for Congress campaign is planning canvassing in the Hudson area and phone banking at the headquarters in Ghent.

Can you spend a little time this weekend to help keep Columbia County blue and elect Scott Murphy to Congress?
