Powers campaign gets some muscle

Got this press release tonight from the Jon Powers for Congress campaign:

POWERS CAMPAIGN ADDED TO NATIONAL RED-TO-BLUE PROGRAM

Program Ads Key Resources and National Recognition to NY-26 Race

WILLIAMSVILLE, NY – Jon Powers, Iraq War Veteran, former captain in the U.S. Army and the endorsed Democratic candidate in New York's 26th congressional district, has been named to the Democratic National Campaign Committee's Red-to-Blue program.

"This is a huge advantage for our campaign," Powers said. "From the beginning, our campaign has focused on bringing the voice of Western New Yorkers back to Washington. Today we are receiving recognition that our message is resonating on a national level."

The DCCC Red-to-Blue program spotlights campaigns across the country that stand for change and will represent new priorities when elected to Congress. The program provides financial and strategic support to races that have surpassed fundraising and voter outreach expectations.
