I received a new communication from Zephyr Teachout yesterday. It highlights the stark difference in choice of a running mate between her and Governor 1%. See below.....
Also check out this great diary posted late last night by Kossak xaxnar
email communication from Zephyr Teachout:
I'm a traditional Democrat: I believe in fully funding public schools, welcoming immigrants, banning fracking, and investing in infrastructure.
I chose Tim Wu as my running mate because he stands for these values - Tim's been challenging corporate power for a very long time in his writings and in his work at the Federal Trade Commission.
Governor Cuomo is not that kind of Democrat -- as Republican Senate Leader Skelos has said, he's more of a "moderate Republican." This is evident when you look at his choice for running mate, Kathy Hochul.
Hochul's record in public office and stated views can lead to only one conclusion: she is not a Democrat.
Last Friday, a campaign volunteer, Tim from Brooklyn, sent us a video of Kathy Hochul describing her own record in her own words. You’ve got to see this to believe it:
This video shows what is at stake in this race, and I need your help in getting the word out. Not only is this an eye-opening video, it demonstrates the kind of campaign we are running: grassroots, do-it-yourself. We don't have millions from special interest groups - we have a large group of small donors and activists who are putting their passion and creativity to work to help us win this thing.
On September 9th Tim will go head-to-head with Hochul on the ballot and we need your help in educating voters about her record. Please share this video through email, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth.
With opponents who are silent on the issues and who refuse to debate, we need every registered Democrat in New York to get a chance to see why this race is so important. (And if you are so inspired, make one yourself!)
