The latest TV ad released Wednesday by the campaign of Republican state Senate candidate Dean Murray highlights anti-sex offender legislation he has sponsored in the state Assembly.

The ad features a mother discussing her concern that “New York City politicians want to prevent us from protecting our children.”

“Honestly, thank God for leaders like Dean Murray,” she says in the ad.

Murray is running for the seat on Long Island being vacated by Republican Sen. Tom Croci. He faces Democratic candidate Monica Martinez.
