Rangel, Nadler support Take Back Congress

I'm excited to share a letter cosigned by Rep. Charlie Rangel and Rep. Jerry Nadler in support of the Working Families Party's Take Back Congress campaign.

From their letter (pdf):
"Everyday we are more confident that Democrats have a historic opportunity to regain majority control in the House this cycle and that with so many competitive races in New York, our state will be the key battleground in this effort. As Dean of our Delegation and your colleague in the Delegation, we write to remind you that we are poised to play a pivotal role by supporting Democratic Congressional candidates across New York. This is not the first time you have been asked to help our Congressional candidates, but today we are urging you to do so by supporting the "Take Back Congress – New York" campaign, an effort of the Working Families Party.

The Working Families Party has played a decisive role in electing Democrats to Congress in New York, including the last two times we picked up seats, when Tim Bishop and later Brian Higgins joined us in the Delegation. The WFP's Take Back Congress – New York campaign is an independent effort targeting Republican-held seats. The WFP's ability to attract additional votes for our candidates – especially in districts where independents and Republicans outnumber Democrats – will be of real help. WFP already has run radio ads in the NY-24 and NY-20 and is known for extremely cost-efficient and effective field campaigns. We regard the Take Back Congress – New York campaign as an additional vehicle for aiding our terrific Democratic challengers in the most competitive Congressional races."
Read our Take Back Congress propsectus and see what they're excited about - and then get involved!

There are phonebanks open in New York City, Ithaca and Auburn - and if you can't call you can donate online.
