Democratic congressional candidate Aaron G. Woolf is apparently taking advantage of the no-holds-barred fight between Republican candidates Elise M. Stefanik and Matthew A. Doheny, who face each other in a primary on June 24, to begin its voter outreach efforts in earnest.
Mr. Woolfs campaign is holding its first Weekend of Action beginning at 10 a.m. on May 31.
According to an email from the campaign, volunteers will participate in phone banks and canvasses across the district.
Between now and election day, we will need to talk to thousands of voters about why Aaron is the best choice in the race for the 21st Congressional District, wrote field director Ben Gardner. Please consider giving a few hours of your time on Saturday, May 31st.
Mr. Woolf, a documentary filmmaker with a residence in Elizabethtown, is running unopposed by a member of his own party in the race for the 21st Congressional District seat held by Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattburgh. Rep. Owens announced in January that he would not be seeking re-election this year.
Stephen W. Burke, a Democrat from Macomb, was poised to challenge Mr. Woolf for the Democratic nomination before the New York state Board of Elections invalidated his petitions for lack of signatures.
