Washington, D.C. – Today, House Majority PAC launched its first ad in the open-seat race for New York’s 22nd Congressional District. The spot, called “Application,” slams GOP nominee and career politician Claudia Tenney for her failed record in Albany. In particular, the ad calls out Tenney for treating her time in the state legislature as a no-show job, having missed more votes than almost any other member of the Assembly while taking over $400,000 in taxpayer-funded salary.
“Application” can be viewed online here.
“For a preview of how Claudia Tenney would act in Washington, voters only need to examine her failed record in Albany,” said House Majority PAC Communications Director Jeb Fain. “Upstate New Yorkers deserve a Representative with a proven commitment to commonsense problem-solving who can get things done for their communities, not a career politician who won’t even show up for work.”
“Application” begins airing on TV today in the Binghamton, Syracuse, and Utica media markets and will run for over a week. The ad is part of a more than $1.1 million media buy targeting the 22nd district. “Application” and future ads in the district will also be further amplified with $80,000 of digital advertising.
