Greater NYC for Change: Parties, Roadtrips, and More - Let's Win Big on November 2nd!


Last week, the Tea Party moved to oust the Members of Congress who stood with us to pass health care reform. They released this ad attacking John Hall in upstate New York. They nominated a millionaire with unlimited funds to challenge Tim Bishop in Long Island.

The polls are tight, and the opponents promise they will repeal health care reform, if elected.

That's why, on Sunday, over one hundred New Yorkers fought back. On trains and cars, they headed out to knock on thousands of doors and talk to hundreds of voters.

I urge you to join us this weekend. The race is still too close to call. What we do will make all the difference!
