Working Families Party endorses Congressman Scott Murphy


June 23, 2010 -

Glens Falls, NY - Today the Working Families Party endorsed Scott Murphy for Congress in the 20th District of New York. This, following the endorsement from the Independence Party of New York, gives Murphy three lines on the ballot in November and is a clear sign that he has broad support that crosses party lines.

"I am honored to accept the endorsement of the Working Families Party," said Rep. Murphy. "I pledge to continue fighting to ease the burden on New York's small businesses and middle class families so we can work together to renew the Upstate economy."

Karen Scharff, co-chair of the Capital Region Chapter of the Working Families Party said:

"The WFP is supporting Scott Murphy because he supports working families when it counts. Scott stood up to Big Oil and voted for landmark clean energy legislation. He stood up to the health insurance lobbyists and voted for health care reform that will give tax credits to 15,000 businesses in this district and give health coverage for the first time to 20,000 people. We need to send Scott back to Washington to keep fighting for middle class New Yorkers."
