We changed the face of New York politics on Tuesday night. The hours spent knocking doors and making calls paid off in a big way, as key Congressional districts were flipped and Democrats gained a majority in the State Senate (after years of being in the minority). This is the result of your hard work. Citizen Action leaders across New York State knocked on nearly 50,000 doors, made over 53,000 calls, and registered just shy of 1000 new voters. That’s what a grassroots movement looks like!
AROUND THE STATE
Our leaders in the Hudson Valley put in a tremendous amount of work to get Antonio Delgado elected in the 24th Congressional District. It was volunteer energy that made the difference at the end of the day. Faso had big corporate money behind him, but we had the people on our side.
Claudia Tenney was one of Trump’s most reliable votes in the House. Now she’s been repealed and replaced with Anthony Brindisi, and we couldn’t be happier. Our Central New York and Southern Tier chapters worked to mobilize voters in Black, Brown, and low-income neighborhoods that have historically been ignored by the political establishment.
