Seal the Deal – Volunteer Today!!!

There are 2 days until Tuesday, November 2.  Our country faces a critical test this day: will we re-elect the same Democrat destroyers who have brought us to the economic cliff, encouraged our enemies, and shamed the country; or will we infuse Congress, state, and local governments with new, Republican blood.

As I’ve detailed time and again, many prominent conservatives, including Thomas Sowell, James Buckley, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh believe this to be the most important election of their lifetime.  New York City represents the densest population area in the country.  It is absolutely critical for all Republican activists to be on the streets every possible hour available until the polls close.

Volunteer with a candidate today, or contact the NYYRC for further instructions!

Poll: One-third of Electorate Undecided

According to a recent AP-GfK poll, up to one-third of voters may still be undecided.

WASHINGTON – One in three people has yet to lock onto a choice in the Nov. 2 congressional elections, according to an Associated Press-GfK Poll. Yet in this year of the fed-up voter, even these folks offer little hope to Democrats.

Despite record political spending and months of frenzied campaigning, one-third of likely voters remain steadfastly undecided or favor a candidate but say they could change their mind, according to the survey.

Furthermore, independents are voting overwhelmingly Republican this year.

Fence-sitters, though, are likelier to be independents — a bad sign for Democrats in a year when independents are leaning toward GOP candidates. Underscoring their distaste for ideology, just 29 percent consider themselves tea party supporters, compared with 41 percent of those who’ve picked a candidate.

This is a very special year for Republicans nationwide.  We have a real chance to take back districts in the bluest of blue (h/t Domenico Modugno) New York City!

Get out and support a local candidate this weekend!!!

From the Bronx

It’s all too easy for some NY Young Republicans to think that all of NY lives in Manhattan.  Let’s not forget our friends off-island! Republicans are competitive in a number of local races in the outer boroughs – for example the Bronx!  In the 81st Assembly District, newcomer Joe McLaughlin is challenging 16-year incumbent Jeffrey Dinowitz for Assembly.  Back Joe Mac!  He’s one of us!  Visit www.joemclaughlinforassembly.com.  Mike Rendino is running for Assembly in the 82nd District.  Mike will fight for you in Albany!  Check out www.mikerendino.com.  And Frank Vernuccio has been endorsed by former Mayor Ed Koch for the 34th Senate District, which covers a good chunk of the northwest Bronx.  See www.vernuccio4senate.com.  Anybody interested in helping out, drop me (Justin) a line at jstnmyrs@gmail.com.

CAROLYN MALONEY POLLS LESS THAN 50% AGAINST RYAN BRUMBERG

From the Brumberg campaign:

PRESS RELEASE: CAROLYN MALONEY POLLS LESS THAN 50% AGAINST RYAN BRUMBERG

NEW YORK, NY — With less than two weeks until the General Election, a new poll reveals Democratic incumbent Carolyn Maloney has less than 50% support against Republican nominee Ryan Brumberg in New York’s 14th Congressional District

Among likely voters, Maloney garnered 49.3%, Ryan Brumberg picked up 29.8%, and 20.9% of voters remained undecided. This is despite Maloney having spent $3.1 million to Brumberg’s $150,000 — a 20X difference as of September 30th.

Incumbents polling under 50% are considered vulnerable.

“This poll reflects what I have seen and heard on the streets of New York,” Ryan said in response to the data. “Rep. Maloney has voted on party lines and against the interests of our district 98.9% of the time. New Yorkers are looking for a candidate willing to look beyond party lines to address the economic recklessness of the past decade.”

The telephone poll was administered on October 19th and 20th using Precision Polling. Matthew Williams, a Columbia graduated student in statistics, advised the Brumberg campaign in designing and administering the poll.

A successful businessman and New York native, Ryan Brumberg is a fiscal conservative and social moderate with the necessary experience to address our nation’s growing issues and enact true reform. For more information on his candidacy, please visit our website, www.brumberg2010.com.

YR Campaign Events Oct. 23 and 24

This weekend (October 23-24) the Young Republicans are going out again in force to help our state senate and congressional candidates. This weekend is not only for hayrides, pumpkin patches and cider mills.

If you are out and about in central New York this weekend and lost all of your money at Turning Stone, and want to help…

This Saturday (October 23rd), Andy Russo’s campaign and the Onondaga County YRs will do a literature drop in Madison County and they would love to have your help.

They’ll meet at 10:00 am, where they will obtain literature and walk sheets of registered voters and a map. We are not knocking, simply dropping a piece of Andy’s literature at targeted voters’ houses. In my experience the average Election District takes just a couple hours to finish.

They’ll meet at the home of Jennifer Bernstone, 321 South Peterboro St., Canastota, NY 13032, between Fiore’s Funeral Home and the American Legion, park in funeral home parking lot and use back deck door.

PLEASE, RSVP to Josh at jpreap@gmail.com or 315-415-4038 by Thursday afternoon and let him know.

If you’re driving in the Hudson Valley between the Vanderbilt mansion and the Culinary Institute of America this weekend, and want to help…

This Saturday (October 23rd), Nan Hayworth’s campaign and the Dutchess County YRs will do phone banking and a literature drop in Dutchess County and they would love to have your help. There will be phone calls in the AM and walking districts in the PM.

They’ll meet at 9:00 am, to pass out info for the phone banks and election district walks.

They’ll meet at the NRC Hudson Valley Victory Office,110 Delafield St, 1st Floor, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
