New York: House Majority PAC Ad Hits Chris Collins on Tenure as County Executive
Posted at 6:01 a.m. on Sept. 26, 2012
House Majority PAC, a third-party group supporting Democrats in Congressional races, today released an attack ad against Republican Congressional candidate Chris Collins, who is taking on Rep. Kathy Hochul (D) in New York’s 27th district.
The 30-second spot hits Collins, the former Erie County executive, for his tenure. “As county executive, Collins gave jobs to his friends,” a male narrator says. “Collins awarded his own company a lucrative county contract and had products manufactured overseas, creating jobs in Korea and China. Jobs we could really use in Western New York.”
The Collins campaign hit back against the negative spot.
The ad, airing in the Buffalo media market for two weeks, is backed by a more than $500,000 buy.
The National Republican Congressional Committee recently launched an ad against Hochul connecting her to Obama, and it’s no surprise why. By the numbers, she’s the most vulnerable Democratic Member in the Empire State, running in the most Republican district.
Roll Call rates the race as a Tossup.
