From the morning memo, ICYMI:

Getting out the vote: It’s an important aspect of political campaigns that’s rarely seen publicly by voters, but deeply important for candidates.

For the primary campaigns of Zephyr Teachout and Tim Wu, they’re relying on a combination of grassroots support and labor groups that have endorsed them.

“My members are ready and they’re out there and there working on positive changes because they’re concerned not only about their own jobs and the staffing and the constant attack on government services, but they’re concerned with the services themselves and the people who need them,” said Susan Kent, of the Public Employees Federation.

Teachout and Wu are hoping for a groundswell of support — and anger among the Democratic faithful that tend to vote in low-turnout primaries — to help them win on September 9.

“I think there are a lot of people who dissatisfied with the Cuomo administration,” Wu said.

In his campaign against former Rep. Kathy Hochul, Wu believes some Asian voters may also be interested in making history.

“I also think my Chinese-American and Asian-American brothers and sisters are really interested in the possibility of having the first Asian statewide elected official,” Wu said.

But Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Hochul have advantages as well, including the backing of key labor unions that specialize in turning out voters: 1199 SEIU and the Hotel Trades Council, both of which helped broker the Working Families Party’s endorsement for Cuomo in May.

On Monday, 1199 reiterated its support for the Cuomo-Hochul ticket with an endorsement.

Perhaps just as crucial, they have county chairs who can target regions, like western New York.

“Getting out the vote in this area for the lieutenant governor will be very important for her and will add to her winning margin,” said Joe Morelle, a key Cuomo ally upstate, the Democratic Assembly majority leader and Monroe County Democratic chairman.

Hochul recognizes the importance of western New York as well, where she is best known after representing the area in Washington.

She’s traveled the state to meet with officials, but this week focused heavily on the Buffalo area.

“I know I need to get my message out, especially in western New York where people have supported me for many, many years,” Hochul said.
