Obama emails for contributions for Murphy
In addition to endorsing him on Wednesday, President Obama emailed supporters soliciting contributions for Democrat Scott Murphy in his race for Sen. Kirsten’s Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) former House seat.
Murphy is running against Republican New York Assemblyman Jim Tedisco for the upstate New York seat in the March 31 special election.
Check out the full email after the jump. Notably, the email comes from Obama’s political arm, Organizing for America. However, I am on the group’s main email list and didn’t receive the email, which means it was probably targeted to New York Democrats. The campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for who this email went to.
UPDATE: The campaign confirmed that the email went to Obama’s New York email list.
I’m writing to you now because you have the opportunity to make a big impact on my efforts to bring about a lasting economic recovery.
Today I’m announcing my support for Scott Murphy, candidate for New York’s 20th Congressional District.
On Tuesday, March 31st — just one week away — voters will have the chance to send Scott to Congress, where we’ll work together to get our economy moving in the right direction.
Volunteer this week and help in the final push to send Scott Murphy to Congress.
Scott has the kind of experience and background we desperately need right now in Washington.
He’s created jobs by building and growing small businesses while bringing people together to address difficult challenges. He supports the economic recovery plan we’ve put in place, and I know we can count on him as an ally for change.
To restore our economy and build a foundation for lasting prosperity, I’ll need Scott’s help. This week, Scott needs yours.
Sign up and pitch in to elect Scott Murphy to Congress:
What you do now can make all the difference as we work in the coming weeks and months to lead our country in a new direction.
President Barack Obama
