National Attention to Our Congressional Race

Earlier today, Zephyr Teachout, the Democratic candidate vying to represent us, the 19th Congressional District in New York, in the House of Representatives, was endorsed by President Barack Obama. Here's what the President had to say about Teachout:
I'm proud to endorse Zephyr Teachout for the United States House of Representatives. In Congress, Zephyr will be the kind of reform-minded leader we need to build on all of the progress we've made over the last eight years to create a stronger, fairer country for our children. Zephyr is an independent fighter for working families, and will help create an economy that works for everyone in this district, not just the wealthy and well-connected. In Congress, I know that Zephyr will fight for independent businesses, be an advocate for ending the influence of secret money in our political system, and stand up to the big polluters that threaten our fragile water resources. I know that families throughout upstate New York can count on Zephyr to stand up for them, too.
In response to the President's endorsement, Teachout said, "Barack Obama has been an outstanding fighter for middle class families. In Congress, I'll continue working to protect Social Security and Medicare, invest in our schools, and bring jobs back to the Hudson Valley."
