Dear EMILY’s List supporter,
The GOP is shaking in its boots. Why? We’ve got a late-breaking opportunity to win a House seat for Democrats. EMILY’s List candidate Kathy Hochul is running in a special election in New York’s 26th district, where Republican Congressman Chris Lee resigned after a scandal. New polling shows Kathy with a slight lead over her opponent, so she has a real shot to win this May 24 election.
With less than two weeks until the election, Kathy’s numbers are putting national Republicans in a panic, which means sending in heavy-hitters like John Boehner to stump for her opponent — and huge cash is pouring into the race from Karl Rove’s secretive American Crossroads group and the NRCC. We must give Kathy our support now to fight on and take advantage of this chance to put a pro-choice, Democratic woman in the House.
