Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney’s first TV ad of the Ny-22 race is not subtle.

The spot goes right for the political jugular of her Democratic opponent, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi. It ties him to the polarizing figure of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (who, by the way, he has said he won’t support to continue in her leadership role if he’s elected to Congress), and also deems him too liberal to represent the upstate district she has held since 2016.

“There’s a clear choice in the race for Congress,” Tenney said. “For months, Anthony Brindisi has dishonestly attempted to portray himself as an independent, and a moderate. It’s time voters learned the truth.”

“Anthony Brindisi is a hardcore liberal who voted for the (Gov. Andrew) Cuomo/(Assembly Speaker Sheldon) Silver agenda 97 percent of the time. In Congress, Brindisi would be a reliable vote for Nancy Pelosi’s extreme agenda.”

Tenney, an outspoken and loyal supporter of President Trump, also doesn’t shy away from that role in this ad, saying she is “fighting for Trump’s agenda” in D.C., despite the fact that Democrats are trying to use that against Republican incumbents in congressional contests across the state.

Tenney, who is known for making controversial statements, has never sought to temper her conservatism, and has consistently run from the right in all her races.

In the 2012 presidential election, the GOP candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, won NY-22 by less than one percentage point, but Trump claimed victory there with a 16-point margin in 2016.

The ad, titled “Fail or Succeed,” is actually a joint effort by Claudia Tenney for Congress – the congresswoman’s campaign committee – and the National Republican Congressional Committee. It will air on broadcast television for the next two weeks in Utica and Binghamton, according to her campaign’s press release.

There was no mention of the size of the buy.

Here’s the script:

“(Announcer): Nancy Pelosi and Anthony Brindisi’s liberal agenda is too extreme for upstate New York. Under Nancy Pelosi, and Anthony Brindisi our economy crashed.

Reckless spending. Devastating unemployment. Higher taxes.

Claudia Tenney is fighting for President Trump’s agenda in Washington. Stopping bad trade deals. Better jobs. Higher wages. A growing economy. Middle class tax cuts.

Claudia Tenney. Standing with President Trump and fighting against Nancy Pelosi and the Washington liberals.

(Claudia Tenney): I’m Claudia Tenney and I approve this message.”
