WPCNR CAMPAIGN 2013. From the Bramson Campaign. October 22, 1013:
President Bill Clinton came to Rye last night to host a Noam Bramson fundraiser at the Rye Town Hilton. Today Bramson supporters were notified with this description of the event:
“Last night, Bill Clinton talked about how important this race is for all of us in Westchester and made the case as only he can. It was an honor and a thrill to hear him throw his support behind Noam. And we had a packed room of supporters ready to make the next two weeks really count.
Today I can tell you that as we head into the final stretch, this race is close … really close. In fact, after being down by 14 points as recently as Labor Day, we’re now looking at a dead heat. Here’s the latest polling for our campaign:
That’s a neck-and-neck race, within the margin of error, with Rob Astorino well under 50% (an important threshold for an incumbent). But we’re not there yet. And if Astorino outspends us three-to-one in this final stretch, our efforts could still fall short.”
The campaign seeks to raise an additional $250,000 in the next ten days to combat what they feel will be a strong Astorino push.
