A pair of TV ads airing for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s re-election campaign highlighting personal testimonials from New Yorkers.

One ad –which I’ve spotted airing here in the Albany area — features a veteran praising Cuomo’s work to provide state contracts to veteran-owned businesses.

“It allows us to compete and allowed us to hire all these new vets who coming home,” says the business owner, identified as Joseph Graham.

A second highlights the state’s response to storm recovery.

The ads come as Rob Astorino releases his own TV spot criticizing Cuomo’s economic record over the last 3-1/2 years, especially when it comes to taxes.
