An advertisement that ran in Western New York over the weekend knocked Rob Astorino for not being a fan of the Buffalo Bills.

“This weekend, when the Miami Dolphins come to town, we’ll all be rooting for our Buffalo Bills. Well, everyone that is except Rob Astorino,” the commercial said.

The Republican running against Governor Andrew Cuomo is a fan of the Miami Dolphins. The ad noted Cuomo has been an active supporter of the Bills.

The spot was paid for by the Erie County Democratic Committee.

Astorino apparently responded to the ad with a tweet showing him holding a Bills hat. “Great game by the @buffalobills today in their opener. Laugh now cause we play the week after Election Day!” 

The Astorino campaign also issued a press release complaining that the original picture of Astorino wearing Dolphins gear included his son. The press release said the Astorinos have been Dolphin fans for three generations and the photo was of a “cherished” trip to the Miami stadium.
