Obama emails last pitch for Murphy

President Obama sent one last GOTV pitch to New York voters last night in an attempt to boost turnout for Democrat Scott Murphy in today’s special election. The email, according to the Albany Project, went to residents of NY-20 who are on either the DNC or Organizing for America’s email lists. Here’s the text:

Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the day to vote in New York’s 20th Congressional District special election, and I need you to go vote.

I wrote to you last week to announce my endorsement of Scott Murphy because we need his kind of leadership and experience in Washington. It’s going to be a very close race, and your vote could make all the difference.

Our movement for change has come this far because supporters like you stood up and made your voices heard every time it mattered.

Please look up your polling location and stand up once again for the change we need to bring to Washington.

With Scott in Congress, we’ll work together to bring about solutions to our economic challenges and create new jobs in Upstate New York and across the country.

Having created over 1,000 jobs by starting successful businesses in clean energy and high-tech industries, Scott understands the potential we have to rebuild our economy and create a new foundation for prosperity.

That’s the kind of partner I need in Washington. Please look up your polling place and vote tomorrow:

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

Obama isn’t the only national pol taking part in the race. As Jeremy Jacobs reported yesterday, both Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (whose former seat, of course, is the one up for grabs) recorded robo-calls for the candidate. Check those out here.

We’ll be following any and all developments in the NY-20 vote today. Stay tuned.
