Democratic activists said they’ll offer “Bon Voyage” tomorrow to Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle, R-Syracuse, as he heads back to Washington for a lame-duck session.

[1]The Associated Press last night reported that Buerkle lost her re-election bid to Democrat Dan Maffei, who lost in 2010 to Buerkle.

Maffei had a 48 percent to 44 percent lead. She hasn’t conceded

The group said it will ask the Republican congresswoman to bring some “travel essentials:”

Ear Plugs: Drown out the noise from Special Interests advocating for the wealthiest 2%
Compass: Help you stay the course toward protecting the middle class and standing up against tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%
Travel Scissors: No more tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%
Band-Aids: No Cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid
Sunscreen: Protect yourself from being burned by Members of Congress who care more about the wealthiest 2% than hard working middle class families
Return Ticket: If you need to know what New Yorkers really need – come home and we’ll remind you
