Call it a tale of two ads.

On Tuesday, the National Republican Congressional Committee released its first ad as part of a $300,000 purchase to bolster the re-election bid of Rep. Claudia Tenney in the 22nd congressional district, linking her Democratic opponent Anthony Brindisi and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

At the same time, Tenney’s campaign released an ad that focuses on her biography and single motherhood.

The ads come as Tenney is defending the central New York House seat in what is considered one of the top battleground races in the state. Tenney is seeking a second term.

The NRCC TV spot plays Cuomo’s since walked-backed comment that America was “never that great” and points to the money Brindisi’s campaign has received from the governor. Brindisi himself has disavowed Cuomo’s remark, calling it “wrong.”

“The Brindisi-Cuomo agenda has already done enough damage to upstate New York,” said NRCC Communications Director Matt Gorman. “Anthony Brindisi is just another liberal Albany machine politician looking for a promotion.”

In a separate ad, the Tenney campaign takes a softer approach.

“Honest, ethics and compassion,” she says in the ad. “My parents lived by those words and so do I.”

Brindisi in a statement said, “Claudia Tenney is behind another shameful attack ad that aims to mislead and outright lie to the people of Upstate New York. Unlike her, I have a clear record of independence and standing up to my party. Her record of obstruction in Albany never created a single job. Now that she’s in Washington, she’s running a new attack ad every week to distract from her disastrous record of stripping healthcare from her constituents while awarding her rich donors with tax breaks.”
