Who’s going to ignore an e-mail from “President Barack Obama”?
He’s hitting in-boxes Monday night with a reminder to Democrats in New York’s 20th Congressional District to get out and vote Tuesday for businessman Scott Murphy.
The high-level get-out-the-vote reminder is paid for by Organizing for America, the successor to the president’s grassroots organization, now a project of the Democratic National Committee. The return address is at barackobama.com.
Murphy is facing state legislator Jim Tedisco in the race to fill a Republican-leaning seat that came open when Kirsten Gillibrand was named to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The race is being covered as a test of Obama’s political swat because it’s the first major election since his inauguration.
Here’s the e-mail:

Subject: Please vote tomorrow
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the day to vote in New York's 20th Congressional District special election, and I need you to go vote.
I wrote to you last week to announce my endorsement of Scott Murphy because we need his kind of leadership and experience in Washington. It's going to be a very close race, and your vote could make all the difference.
Our movement for change has come this far because supporters like you stood up and made your voices heard every time it mattered.
Please look up your polling location and stand up once again for the change we need to bring to Washington.
With Scott in Congress, we'll work together to bring about solutions to our economic challenges and create new jobs in Upstate New York and across the country.
Having created over 1,000 jobs by starting successful businesses in clean energy and high-tech industries, Scott understands the potential we have to rebuild our economy and create a new foundation for prosperity.
That's the kind of partner I need in Washington. Please look up your polling place and vote tomorrow:
