Message from Former NYS Gubernatorial Candidate Carl Paladino:
This coming weekend, on March 3rd & 4th, groups all across New York State will be holding presidential caucuses, in preparation for the primary on April 26th. As a member of the Tea Party in Buffalo, I am encouraging you to participate in your local caucus. Below are a few of the locations:
Buffalo (TEA New York)
295 Main Street
Ellicott Square Building
Orange/Sullivan (Sheryl Thomas)
Town of Chester Senior Center
1784 Kings Hwy
Broome County (Broome TEA)
If you are unable to locate a caucus near you, I ask that you to reach out to your local Tea Party group and help put one together.
I am supporting Newt Gingrich for President and I welcome you to join us in our efforts. With a strong show of support at these local caucuses, we can catapult Newt to the front in New York State.
I urge you to show your support for Newt by following this link and sign up for email notifications.
If you would like to become active in the fight, and decide to volunteer on behalf of Newt, please contact Campaign Coordinator Steve Luftschein by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. In either case, your contact information will be kept confidential.
Thank you for your dedication and support.
P.S. Please see letter from TEA NY Rus Thompson below.
Dear Concerned New York State Citizen:
For the last two years we have been looking forward to the Elections of 2012 and the opportunity to have a major influence on the political process. The time has come for all of us to take action.
As usual, the Republican elite, in an effort to maintain their power, is pushing Rino Romney on us. Only with TEA Party support will we be able to finally fend them off and get a worthy candidate to go one-on-one with the absolute worst President this country has ever seen.
There are only four candidates left in the primary and it is time for New Yorkers to come together, join forces, pick a candidate and ride to victory in the NY Primary on April 24th.
During the Paladino for Governor Campaign we made history. Never before had a grassroots movement totally destroyed the Party choice. Sixty-three percent of the total Republicans voted against the established candidate, Rick Lazio. We can do it again if we come together in unison. We have proven it could be done. We need to show them that we are still a strong force to be reckoned with.
Carl Paladino and I have decided to join the Newt Gingrich campaign. We feel Newt is the only candidate with the knowledge and experience to defeat Obama and the status quo in the Republican hierarchy. We are asking that you join us and help us to build a strong grassroots, TEA Party momentum to help Newt win here in New York State.
If you are with us and support Newt Gingrich, please respond to this email with your support. If you are uncommitted, please consider getting behind Newt and join our team. If you’re a leader of a TEA Party, we ask that you reach out to your members and ask them who they are supporting. Help us build an organization to defeat the status quo candidate Romney in New York.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks for all you’re doing. Without you, the status quo reigns.
TEA New York, Buffalo
