We had a great event last night with President Clinton — and we’ve got some great news to share with you today.
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). Astorino tried to put Noam away early with a wave of negative, dishonest ads starting over the summer. It didn’t work. Instead, Noam is closing fast.
But we’re not there yet. And if Astorino outspends us three-to-one in this final stretch, our efforts could still fall short.
So I need your help, and I need it now. We’ve got to raise $250,000 in the next ten days, and we cannot do it without you. So this is an urgent appeal: PLEASE make one final contribution.
I’ve never seen a candidate work harder than Noam. He’s excelled in every debate and every interview – making the case with strength and passion.
Our entire team is energized.
But we need you to bring home the victory.
Help us close the gap and win!
