Rep. Richard Hanna, a moderate Republican who is facing a challenge on his right from Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney in the June 24 NY-22 primary, is launching a new TV ad that focuses on his fiscal conservatism – most notably, his vote in favor of repealing “Obamacare” and dislike of so-called “big government.”

In the wake of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s loss to a little-known and under-funded Tea Party primary challenger, ostensibly because he was not conservative enough on key issues – particularly immigration – incumbent Republicans tryign to fend off more conservative primary opponents must be feeling a little nervous. (Or so the House Democrats hope).

Tenney doesn’t have anywhere near Hanna’s resources. (I believe she isn’t on the air yet, while he has had several ads running to date). But she does have the support of the state Conservative Party (albeit not its ballot line, due to her failure to file a sufficient number of signatures), and has been railing against Hanna for what she says are his insufficiently conservative positions on a host of policy issues.

The 30-second ad, which was filmed at the Sweet Basil Diner in Barneveld, hits the airwaves tomorrow. The script is as follows:

“Our $17 trillion dollar debt threatens our national security and our children’s future. So I voted for a balanced budget, for real spending cuts and I voted to repeal Obamacare. Bigger government is the problem – not the solution. When I ran for Congress, I promised you I’d fight for fiscal sanity and conservative solutions and that’s what I’ll continue to do. I’m Richard Hanna and I approve this message.”
