Help Daily Kos take back the New York state Senate for Democrats
Democrats won a majority of seats to the New York state Senate in 2012. But then, a group of renegade “Democrats” caucused with the GOP, throwing control of the state Senate to the Republicans and killing a slew of progressive legislation -- including a fracking ban, a minimum wage raise, paid medical leave, and campaign finance reform.
Now, the “Democrats” who threw power to the GOP and killed the progressive agenda in the state have the gall to seek for re-election as Democrats!
But most outrageously, it turns out that New York’s Democratic governor, Andrew Cuomo, was partly responsible for the coup.
Betrayal like this from "Democrats" can not be tolerated, no matter where it happens in the country. We can beat two of these renegade “Democratic” state senators and Cuomo’s hand-picked lieutenant governor, who is faring so badly that he’s considering dropping her from the ticket.
The election is next week. If you contribute now, Act Blue can wire the money overnight.
