From the Morning Memo:

A coalition of organizations that support the Affordable Care Act are launching a pair of ads in the 22nd and 24 congressional districts to highlight the law, and criticize the Republican House members who represent the areas.

The ads from Speak Out Central New York are critical of both Reps. Claudia Tenney and John Katko, two Republicans who are running for re-election in contested battleground elections this fall.

In one ad, a woman from Windsor in Tenney’s district discusses how a full repeal of the ACA would make it harder to afford health care for her children.

Tenney was a vocal supporter of ACA repeal legislation. Katko broke ranks with Republicans, repeatedly voting against measures that would scale back the law, but he did back the Republican tax cut measure in 2017, which ended the requirement that all Americans possess health insurance.

In the Katko-targeted spot, a nurse is highlighted criticizing the lawmaker for backing the tax measure.

The ads are part of a six-figure ad purchase by the coalition ahead of what’s expected to be a competitive election for both House districts. The campaign will run from June to the end of July in the district’s media markets.

At the same time, Speak Out Central New York also unveiled a billboard near Katko’s Syracuse district office highlighting the tax law vote.

Katko faces Democrat Dana Butler, the winner of Tuesday’s primary. Tenney is set to face Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi.
