How close is the race in NY-19? Close enough that AFSCME has committed to a huge ad buy for Schreibman:
AFSCME is launching when it’s describing as a six-figure ad purchase starting next week in the 19th Congressional district race, knocking incumbent Rep. Chris Gibson for siding with GOP lawmakers like Paul Ryan and Michelle Bachmann.Unions, who don't have anywhere near the resources of corporations, don't spend big bucks on races they know they can't win. Yet another sign that Gibson is in deep trouble.
The independent expenditure ad is just one of many that’s been blanketing the airwaves in closely watched House races across the state.
