Grimm's Support Grows

In a wide-ranging email, NY-13 Congressional candidate Michael Grimm delineates how his support is growing. He has received endorsements from MAF Freedom PAC and Vets For Freedom PAC (Combat Veterans for Congress). Grimm has six times the Facebook supporters of his Democratic opponent and incumbent Michael McMahon. Grimm has called McMahon out for his support of ObamaCare and the stimulus, Card Check, raising taxes and tools, and McMahon's blatant use of lies, dishonesty, and deceit during the campaign.

New York’s 13th Congressional District covers Staten Island and part of Brooklyn. Governor Palin endorsed Grimm on July 28, 2010, along with John Gomez for NY-2 who ran unopposed and won. She was the first to be acknowledged and recognized during his victory speech. US for Palin Publisher, Ron Devito is campaigning for Grimm. For the primary, Devito walked door-to-door in the 60th and 79th Election Districts, installed lawn signs in the 10314 zip code, called voters on primary day and closed the PS 36 poll. When Devito arrived to the victory celebration, Allegretti had already called Grimm to concede. Watch Grimm's victory speech here. Devito is continuing his work for Grimm, having completed door-to-door walking blitzes in the 34th, 42nd, and 57th Election Districts. He will begin another door-to-door blitz in the 85th district.

Dear Supporter,

Welcome to this week's email blast where you can keep track of Michael Grimm's Congressional Campaign in NY-13. Find out about exciting developments, get updates, and follow the campaign all at once!

Grimm's Support Keeps Growing

MAF Freedom PAC (MAFPAC), a political action committee whose mission is to support our troops and the war on terrorism, explained why Michael Grimm is the “Real” Conservative in the NY-13 Race.

Read more about it here.

Vets For Freedom Political Action Committee, the largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans organization in America, endorsed one of their own, Combat Veteran Marine Michael Grimm, for Congress.Read more about the endorsement here.

DeFundIt.Org, an organization advocating for the de-funding of ObamaCare (which Michael Grimm has taken the pledge to do once he is in Congress), released a video setting the record straight that the Democrats, such as Mike McMahon (who is featured in this video), who voted against ObamaCare really support the law. Watch the video here.

Michael Grimm rebuked New York State for failure to mail absentee ballots to the military and demanded that "the Board of Elections should do whatever it takes to get these brave men and women their absentee ballots immediately." Read more about it here.

Grimm condemned McMahon for co-sponsoring a controversial card-check legislation -- which takes away a worker’s right to a secret ballot -- and taking an outrageous $442,635 from the labor unions. Read more about it here.

Michael Grimm criticized Mike McMahon’s vote for the economic stimulus bill instead of offering an alternative. Grimm said that instead of supporting the stimulus, he would have called for a two- or three-year suspension of the capital gains tax on new investment and a lowering of federal payroll taxes to create jobs and spur investment. Read the SI Advance article here.

Michael Grimm blasted the pattern of lies, deceit and dishonesty, which has defined the re-election campaign of career politician Mike McMahon. Read the SI Advance article here.

The Staten Island Advance Debate is set for Tuesday, October 26th at 7:30pm at Wagner College. It would be great to have our supporters at the Debate. If you are interested in attending, please email newsroom@siadvance.com ASAP! There are only 150 tickets available! We look forward to hopefully seeing you on the 26th!
