Statement from Campaign of Businessman Bob Turner on
Today's Siena Poll Results
September 9, 2011
"Queens and Brooklyn voters of all political parties are sending a terse telegram to President Obama that they are unhappy with his economic agenda and his hostile stance toward Israel. Today's Siena Poll captures that in a snap-shot.
"Businessman Bob Turner is receiving strong bi-partisan support in the race, led by former Mayor Ed Koch and Assemblyman Dov Hikind, because he represents a break with the machine politics and politicians who have killed job-growth in this nation and put us into crisis-level debt. Voters are also rejecting career politician David Weprin's highly negative campaign, particularly his abhorrent strategy of trying to frighten senior citizens - the strategy that Mayor Koch has repeatedly asked Mr. Weprin to 'knock off.'
"President Obama and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee are sending hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of Obama for America ground troops into Queens and Brooklyn to try to quell this revolt against Mr. Obama's agenda. Judging from what we're hearing on the street, that Washington-driven effort will fail. The voters of Brooklyn and Queens are speaking to Mr. Obama through this contest, and they will not be silenced." -William O'Reilly, Turner campaign spokesman.
This is a major upset in the making. The Reagan Democrats seem to be forming all by themselves behind a "common sense" conservative. Without the help of the Republican Party. Hope they have to sense not to screw this up. This is much better than even the Scotty Brown thing last cycle. This is a real choice and a repudiation of President Obama and the radical lefts agenda.
Wow first the repudiation of dirty politics in the Wisconsin primaries now this. Hopefully the recall election this November of Paul Scott in Mi. will catch some of the coat tails off this statement of disdain from NY about the abuse of power the Left is all too eager to throw around along with it's money and it's minions.
Regards, Live Dangerously Be A Conservative
