Mark Levine, Manhattan’s Borough President writes:
Democracy is on the line on Nov. 8th—here in New York and nationally. In this election, Democrats face a Republican party that advances the Big Lie, denies reproductive freedom, and keeps our nation awash in guns.
Against this extremism, statewide Democrats in New York are only polling in the low 50s. That’s way too close for comfort. We need our voters to come out in huge numbers in Manhattan and across all of New York City to ensure our candidates win big statewide.
We also need to fight to win swing districts around the state and nation. If Republicans take control of congress, it will have disastrous consequences for our democracy.
We need your help, to take the energy we are building here in Manhattan to Wake Up Dems in key races around NYC and beyond.
This Saturday – October 8th – I am teaming up with Vote Blue 2022 to organize bus trips to bring Manhattan volunteers to a competitive and crucial district – New Jersey CD-7.

I hope you can join me Saturday to head to PA to talk to voters and get the word out! Sign up HERE or the button below.
