Bellport, NY - July 12, 2016 - The De Vito for Senate campaign has released a video highlighting the inordinate influence of money in politics, and will be leading a Reddit AMA on Wednesday at 1PM to discuss the issues associated with the influence of special interest money in politics.

The video itself is a time lapse of a typical day for John De Vito, Democratic candidate for the New York State Senate’s third district. It demonstrates the single-minded focus that candidates must have on fundraising in order to be competitive in New York state’s lax legal framework for political campaigns. The video can be found here.

A Reddit AMA is a collaborative interview with members of the Reddit community. Similar events have been hosted in the past by President Obama and actor Sean Penn. They are an effective way to engage with a diverse community.

De Vito seeks to defeat freshman Senator Tom Croci and has recently picked up additional endorsements from the Working Families Party, the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, UFCW Local 1500, CWA Local 1108 and the Brookhaven Democratic Committee’s Executive Board.

New York’s Third Senate District is located wholly in Suffolk County and includes the communities of Hauppauge, Central Islip, Brentwood, East Islip, Bayport, Blue Point, Patchogue, Bellport, Ronkonkoma, Medford, Shirley and Mastic Beach.
