A Super-PAC focused on helping Democrats is launching a million-dollar TV punch against Conservative Republican Claudia Tenney, who is running for a seat in the 22nd District.
The ad, airing in Syracuse, Utica and Binghamton slams the New Hartford State Assemblywoman for her attendance record on the job in Albany.
The ad says, “Attendance, treated it as a no-show job. Missed 480 votes in one session alone. Claudia Tenney, the very worst of Albany, why would we send her to Washington?”
The House majority PAC is dedicated to taking back the House for Democrats.
They say the ad is part of a one point $1 million media buy targeting the 22nd Congressional District.
The PAC is not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
In response, Tenney released a statement saying she has a 96 percent career attendance record and a “proven record of independent leadership” in the Assembly.
Tenney is one of three candidates on the November ballot in the 22nd District. Broome County Democrat Kim Myers and Independent Martin Babinec of Little Falls are also vying for the seat left open by the retirement of moderate Republican Richard Hanna.
The district covers all or part of 8 counties, from the eastern half of Oswego County, through the Mohawk Valley and into the Southern Tier. it includes all of Cortland and Madison Counties.
