The new Super PAC that 2006 GOP gubernatorial nominee John Faso has launched is already on the air with a TV ad supporting one of two Republican congressional candidates vying for the seat being vacated by Democratic NY-21 Rep. Bill Owens.

Faso declined to say which – if any – candidates his New York 2014 committee is backing. But a source familiar with airtime purchases in the North Country forwarded a copy of the ad that appears below, which makes it clear that New York 2014 has chosen sides in the district’s GOP primary.

Stefanik is a political newcomer who is battling businessman Matt Doheny for the GOP line. Doheny, as you’ll recall, ran unsuccessfully for the seat twice before. Stefanik has the Conservative Party line, and Doheny has the Independence Party line, which means both of them could continue on into the general election as a potential spoiler after losing the June 24 primary.

The pro-Stefanik ad calls her a “new generation conservative,” and says she was “born and raised in upstate New York,” but doesn’t specify where, exactly, she grew up. (It was not in the district, though her family has a second home in Willsboro). The buy, according to my source, is about $70,000, split with about $56,000 in the Albany market and $13,000 for Burlington, VT broadcast and cable. The ad went up yesterday and is scheduled to run through June 2.

Here’s the script:

“To shake up Congress, we have to send new people. Elise Stefanik, a new generation conservative. Born and raised in upstate New York, Stefanik fought for conservative victories alongside President Bush and Paul Ryan, then came back to the North Country and her family’s small business. Elise’s agenda: repeal Obamacare, cut spending, bring jobs to our area. Elise Stefanik, someone we can be proud of in Congress.”
