Harrison on MSNBC Tuesday

Democratic Congressional Candidate Steve Harrison to appear on MSNBC
Interviewed at 3pm by Hardball host Chris Matthews

STATEN ISLAND/BROOKLYN, NY – Democratic Congressional Candidate Steve Harrison (NY-13, Staten Island/Bklyn) is scheduled to be a guest on MSNBC’s “Decision 2006: Battleground America — The Homestretch,” on Tuesday, October 24. His appearance is part of the MSNBC special, an all-day look at critical races across the country. Harrison will be on during the 3pm hour, anchored by “Hardball” host Chris Matthews. Harrison is running against New York City’s only Republican House member, Vito Fossella.

Chris Matthews isn’t the only pundit to start paying attention to the much tighter than expected NY’s 13th Congressional District race. On Friday, October 20, Congressional Quarterly changed the race’s status.

CQ reporter Marie Horrigan wrote, “With New York 13 hardly immune to the political atmosphere facing Republicans in general this year, CQPolitics.com has changed its rating on the race to Republican Favored from Safe Republican.”

Harrison welcomed the news. “As we always knew it would, this race is gaining momentum. People are recognizing that Vito Fossella, supposedly our representative, does not represent the interests or values of his constituents.”

Harrison is very busy on Oct 24. In addition to MSNBC on Oct 24, Harrison will participate in the fifth of five scheduled debates with opponent Fossella that have highlighted the differences between the two candidates. The final Harrison/Fossella debate, hosted by the Bay Ridge Community Council, will take place at 7:30 pm, October 24 at the Shore Hill Senior Center, 9000 Shore Road in Brooklyn.

He was the chair of Brooklyn’s Community Board 10 and has held key leadership positions in organizations such as Brooklyn Remembers and the American Heritage Democratic Organization.

THIS IS FANTASTIC! Hope to see the tape since I'll be at work and that's my only disappointment.

Can't wait to see it. Also heard Vito was invited but he declined. What kind of politician refuses a chance to be heard on Chris Matthews/MSNBC/National Television? A politician who's scared of being found out.
