HUDSON VALLEY, NY— Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson announced its 2020 State Senate endorsements, backing Jen Metzger, Karen Smythe, and Michelle Hinchey. All three are in competitive races in the Hudson Valley, a key battleground for deciding who controls the State Senate.
“Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson stands up for candidates who fight for a New York that works for all of us, not just the 1%. Jen Metzger delivered for working people last session, and Karen Smythe and Michelle Hinchey are running to do just that,“ said Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson Executive Director, Jonathan Bix. “We’re only jumping into a few races, because we want to have a huge impact on each one. We made 34,991 get-out-the-vote door-knocks, calls, and texts for the election last year. This year we’re doing a whole lot more – we’ll be knocking on tens-of-thousands of doors for our endorsed candidates.”
