President Bill Clinton: “I Will Be Proud to Call Justin Wagner My State Senator”
Statement of Support from Former President to Feature Prominently on Final Wagner Mailer and Election-Day Literature
Mt. Kisco, NY – Literature released by the Justin Wagner for State Senate campaign prominently features President Bill Clinton, who will appear in both the Wagner campaign’s final direct mail piece and in election-day literature. President Clinton is a resident of Chappaqua, one of the communities newly added to the 40th Senate District in this year’s redistricting plan.
A quote from President Clinton, paired with his photograph in the literature, praises Justin as a mainstream candidate who can get the Hudson Valley’s economy back on track:
“Justin Wagner is a candidate of mainstream values and common sense solutions for the Hudson Valley. Justin will work with people on both sides of the aisle to get our economy moving again and put people back to work. I will be proud to call Justin Wagner my State Senator.”
The emphasis on mainstream values is in keeping with the Wagner campaign’s strategy of underscoring incumbent Republican Senator Greg Ball’s extreme conservative positions. Ball, who has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on television ads, billboards, and mailings touting himself as a moderate was just this month ranked the most conservative member of the New York State Senate by the state’s Conservative Party – for the second year in a row.

Justin Wagner, who like President Clinton is a fellow Georgetown University alumnus, is running to represent the Hudson Valley’s 40th Senate District in the New York State Senate. He is an attorney raising his family in Croton-on-Hudson. The 40th District, which includes portions of northern Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties, is one of the most competitive in the state, with first-term Senator Greg Ball winning just 51 percent of the vote in 2010.
