Good news and bad news

You may have noticed I’ve been MIA lately.  I’m moving to DC at the end of the month (good news), and until then I am living with friends and don’t really have much access to the internet.  That, plus the planning inherent in any big move, has kept me from keeping you as informed as I would like.

I’ll be back in April.

Until then, go to and support his run on New York’s 20th District.  The special election is March 31!

NY-20 Special Election date set

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks.  Long story short, I no longer have internet access between Sunday night and Friday morning, so this has kind of fallen by the wayside.

In case you haven’t heard, we finally have a probable date for the special election in NY-20:

Gov. David Paterson announced Wednesday that the special election to fill the congressional seat vacated by Kirsten Gillibrand’s move to the U.S. Senate will likely take place Tuesday, March 31.

Paterson, speaking in the ornate Red Room at the Capitol, said he planned to issue a proclamation setting the March election date on Monday, Feb. 23.

Between now and then, Jim Tedisco’s campaign could use as many volunteers as possible.  If you’re in the area, head over to his campaign site to sign up.  You can donate to Tedisco’s campaign here.

$20 for NY-20!

The rightroots are participating in a push today to for NY-20 Congressional candidate Jim Tedisco.


The Democrat running for this seat, tax cheat venture capitalist Scott Murphy, is bringing his A-game.  That means the ability to self-fund and ride on now-Sen. Kristen Gillibrand’s coattails (something which may be a little harder now that her former constituents feel betrayed by her).

We need to level the playing field.  Please donate today and help ensure the 20th District returns to Republican hands.

News from NY-20!

I’ve been remiss in not adding the special election in New York’s 20th District to my list of races.  It is one of RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s priorities, and it is important to me as well.

The word on the street is that for now-Sen. Kristen Gillibrand’s seat to be filled, Gov. David Paterson has to call for a special election. Being a dutiful Democrat, he’s avoided doing that for the past 14 days.

Why? Because it’s a red district, and the Republican candidate, Jim Tedisco, is ahead in the polls.

We need to get on this as soon as possible. So while you’re calling you Senator about the porkulus bill, make sure to place a call to Gov. Paterson’s office as well.

His number is 518-474-8390, and you can e-mail him here.

Oh, and in keeping with Democratic Party rules, their nominee is a tax cheat.

You can donate to Jim Tedisco’s campaign here.

Also, be sure to follow Jim Tedisco on Twitter.
