As independent Jack Davis and Republican Jane L. Corwin continue to battle for voters aligned with the tea party movement, Corwin is set to score a major coup today with the endorsement of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a hero to tea party types.
A Corwin source said Rubio will announce his support today for the Clarence assemblywoman, and will make about 60,000 automated phone calls on her behalf to boot.
Voters in the 26th District can expect this message from Rubio: "We have changed the debate, we are moving in the right direction but we are in the middle of the fight. Jane Corwin will be a voice we need to keep that momentum up. Join me in supporting Jane and please go vote this coming Tuesday, May 24th in the special election. It is critical."
