If you’re anything like me, you were stunned, sickened, and then livid after a Congressman yelled “YOU LIE” at President Obama during his State of the Union address. My first thought was: “What the hell is wrong with Republicans? Will they put politics above their respect for the Office of the President?” and then, “God DAMN I hope someone runs against that (@&#&!(^ next year.”
My prayers have been answered: Rob Miller is running against Joe Wilson. This is becoming a battleground seat and millions of dollars are being poured onto both candidates. Rob is in town tomorrow (Tuesday) night — so join MYD as we lend our support to this progressive challenger!
We’re co-hosting the Young Professionals for Rob Miller event taking place on Tuesday night at the swanky club Cieolo in the Meat Packing District. Tickets are $50 but if you’re a student and/or really broke (many of us are, no shame in it!), ping our Development Director Jamie Ansorge (dev [at] goMYD [dot] com) to see if you can get the hookup for $25.
