Suozzi Crisscrosses District to Kick Off Early Vote
Suozzi energized thousands of NY-03 voters, while Pilip held no public events
Glen Cove, NY – This weekend, to kick off early voting efforts, former Congressman Tom Suozzi crisscrossed New York’s Third Congressional District and held nine rallies from Bethpage to Westbury, Port Washington, Bay Terrace, and Glen Cove to urge voters to cast their ballots early.
Meanwhile, Mazi Pilip’s campaign held no public events. Pilip’s only showing this weekend was on a CNN interview, where she did a complete about-face from her normal evasion of questions and finally laid her marker down on her support of Donald Trump even if he is convicted of a crime and solidified her opposition that she would not vote to codify Roe v. Wade.
Suozzi started his weekend with a Saturday morning rally in Bethpage with the Carpenters Union that drew well over 1000 supporters and then held rallies in Mineola and Westbury with various unions that each had several hundred attendees.
At each rally, Suozzi touted his record of working across party lines to get things done, particularly putting forth commonsense solutions to tackle immigration and strengthen our border, while his opponent, Mazi Pilip, has admitted to playing politics with GOP party bosses over immigration instead of finding bipartisan solutions to fix our border.
Suozzi capped his Saturday schedule with a Women for Suozzi rally in Port Washington. He was joined by local women leaders and voters, where he underscored his commitment to making sure abortion stays safe, legal, and accessible and unequivocally declared that he’d vote to codify Roe v. Wade when re-elected to Congress. Pilip, on the other hand, would let politicians make women’s healthcare decisions for them.
On Sunday in Glen Cove, Suozzi spoke to over 250 of his hometown supporters and highlighted his strong record on public safety and work to pass gun violence prevention legislation, while Pilip only offers up the same old NRA talking points and has willfully misled voters about where she stands on an assault weapons ban.
Suozzi also held rallies in Hicksville, a second rally in Bethpage, and in Floral Park and Bay Terrace in Queens.
