Bill Clinton backs Owens
November 5, 2012 - Chris Morris
Big day for endorsements in the race for New York's 21st Congressional District.
First, former Gov. George Pataki endorsed Republican Matt Doheny, and now we have a former president throwing his support to Democratic incumbent Bill Owens.
According to the Owens campaign, Bill Clinton has endorsed Owens for a third term. Clinton's voice is also popping up on robo-calls across the district, so don't be surprised if you hear from Clinton before day's end.
Here's the transcript of Clinton's phone call, provided to the press by Owens for Congress:
“Hello. This is President Bill Clinton. I’m calling to ask you to support Bill Owens for Congress this Tuesday. Bill’s got a strong record of fighting for middle class families in upstate NY, and he has what it takes to create jobs and grow the economy. He knows we have to balance the budget, and do it in the right way by cutting wasteful spending and not giving more tax breaks to millionaires. I’m proud to support Bill Owens because he’s the only candidate who will fight for middle class families and their future. I hope Bill can count on your support Tuesday. Thanks.”
