Zephyr Teachout's campaign for Congress is Ground Zero for fighting billionaires and SuperPACs. There is no clearer difference in political outlooks than the contest between Teachout and her Republican opponent John Faso.
After discovering that ultra-rich, reclusive New York hedge fund manager Paul Singer has pledged $500,000 to a SuperPAC supporting her opponent, Teachout issued a challenge in the video above. She's calling for Singer to come to her district and debate the issues faced by constituents there.
As she says, Singer is a privatizer who never met a trade agreement he didn't like. Offshoring is his middle name.
Howie Klein noted earlier this year that her district is definitely winnable. I view it as where the political revolution Bernie started can win and win big.
$500,000 is a lot of money, and her average donation is $15. So if you can help her fight the billionaires, please do.
This is how we fight a political revolution against millionaires and billionaires. One district at a time.
Update: Howie Klein tells me that it's not just Singer. Robert Mercer has also pledged $500,000 and Singer just added another $100,000. They're really afraid of her, aren't they?
Let the political revolution begin HERE.
