The attorney general is out with an email to his supporters this morning titled “My Friend Kathy” urging them to volunteer for the Kathy Hochul campaign, and to try to steal a seat in this deeply Republican district.
The letter comes as the G.O.P. is rolling out big guns of their own–Florida senator and Tea Party star Marco Rubio has recorded a robocall for Republican Jane Corwin.
The two debated last night–a debate that Tea Party candidate Jack Davis begged off of–and mostly tussled over Social Security, Medicare, and the role of government.
Full Schneiderman letter below:
I just returned from Erie County, and change is on the way.
There are just five days to go until the special election in New York’s 26th Congressional district – and we have an opportunity to beat the odds and elect Kathy Hochul, a real fighter who will protect our tax dollars, restore public trust in the government, and help get Western New York’s economy back on track.
Kathy is tough and she will stand up for our values in Congress. She’s been an outstanding Clerk in Erie County with a long record of ensuring there is not one set of rules for the powerful, and another for everyone else. I have no doubt she will bring the same energy, commitment and resolve to Washington. The Buffalo News, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, and the Greece Post have all endorsed Kathy, and her support continues to grow every day.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting Kathy Hochul for Congress.
If you live in the 26th Congressional District, contact the campaign and volunteer to help knock on doors and get out the vote this final weekend. If you aren’t able to knock on doors, click here and make 26 phone calls to help turn the 26th Congressional District blue.
This is a close race, and your help will make a real difference. By helping elect Kathy Hochul, we can send a message – and a smart, tough and effective Congresswoman – to Washington.
