OBAMA BACKS MURPHY FOR CONGRESS
It's great to see President Obama has come out and endorsed Scott Murphy the next Congressman of the 20th district. I will be leaving NYC and heading to Albany tomorrow, through the 31st to stump for Scott and look forward to his victory on the 31st!!!!!
This morning, President Barack Obama endorsed Scott Murphy for Congress, highlighting Scott’s real world experience helping create jobs and growing businesses as the basis for his endorsement.
“Scott Murphy is the right candidate for Upstate New York to turn the economy around and create jobs,” said President Barack Obama.
“Scott has the right experience, with a record of creating real, high-paying jobs in Upstate New York. Now he’s ready to go to Washington to continue that work alongside me and Democrats and Republicans in Congress. He has shown he’s willing to take a stand for the people in his district by supporting the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to get Upstate New York’s economy moving again.”
“Not only will Scott Murphy be a strong ally in creating jobs and stabilizing the economy, he also shares my commitment to improving health care, bringing our schools into the 21st century, and pushing for openness in government and responsible budgeting.”
“Scott Murphy will follow in the footsteps of Kirsten Gillibrand by delivering for Upstate New York, and I look forward to working with him in Congress.”
“I could not be more honored and humbled to have the President’s support,” said local businessman Scott Murphy. “I look forward to working with the President as well as Democrats and Republicans in Washington to implement his recovery package, help create jobs Upstate, and ultimately get our economy back on track.”
