During the midterm elections, at which time the Obama Administration is under attack by extreme right wing conservative elements of the Republican Party, Yes We Can! Long Island feels compelled to endorse the following Democratic candidates running for national office:
- New York Congressional District 1 Congressman Tim Bishop
- New York Congressional District 2 Congressman Steve Israel
- New York Congressional District 3 – No Endorsement.
- New York Congressional District 4 Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy
- New York Congressional District 5 Gary Ackerman
- New York Senator Charles Schumer
- New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
Recognizing the limit of our grassroot organization’s resources, the Board of Yes We Can! Long Island will enthusiastically support the campaigns of Congressman Bishop and Congresswoman McCarthy.
