In NY-13, Vito Fossella's district, a competitive Democratic primary is in the works.
On one side, you have a candidate named Mike McMahon. Who is Mike McMahon?
“He’s not as conservative as Powers, but he definitely appeals to us on some of the issues. He appeals to us on his opposition to gay marriage, and he told us he continues to support U.S. action in Iraq.” - Conservative Party Chair Jerry KasserOn the other side, we have Steve Harrison, a co-author of "The Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq.".
Guess which one the DCCC endorsed?
Once again, the DCCC has stuck its hands in a primary, supporting the Bush Democrat before the people even had a chance to decide for themselves what they wanted.
We, the people, must stand behind the progressive Democrat who is for HR 676, safe renewable energy, and for the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq.
Instead, the machine is trying to force a politician on us who - believe it or not - supports offshore drilling.
The councilman favors nearly all means of addressing the nation’s energy problems, including offshore drilling, something Mr. Harrison opposes.So you can either vote for a Bush Democrat who is just like Vito Fossella OR you can vote for a progressive Democrat...and since the Republican party in NY-13 is in shambles, whomever wins this primary will go on to represent us in Congress.
Steve Harrison needs your help.
