Congressional hopefuls Stefanik, Doheny roll out TV, radio ads
Thursday, May 1, 2014 - 5:42 pm

The two contenders for the Republican nomination in the race for Congress have released TV and radio ads as they campaign to be party’s nominee.

Elise Stefanik of Willsboro released her first TV ad, “Unanimous,” which can be found here and two radio ads running district-wide called “Debt,” which can be found here and “Obamacare,” which can be found here.

“These ads reflect what I hear as I meet with voters on the campaign trail,” Stefanik said. “Washington is broken and we need to bring fresh ideas to Congress to start creating solutions that will help our small businesses grow. This message is resonating, and these ads will help voters throughout the district become better informed about our campaign.”

Stefanik was a Republican political staffer in Washington before returning to the North Country and announcing her campaign for the 21st District seat.

The Doheny for Congress campaign released its first radio ad in the primary campaign entitled "Real World." It can be found here.

Speaking for Watertown’s Matt Doheny, campaign spokesman David Catalfamo said, "Matt Doheny is a true son of the North Country and is the only candidate to take the Americans for Tax Reform Pledge not to raise taxes. His real world experience is exactly what we need to loosen the grip of DC insiders whose big government policies are stifling job creation and economic opportunity.”

Stefanik is headed to a June primary contest with Doheny for a spot on the November ballot for the 21st Congressional District seat in the North Country.

Democrat Aaron Woolf of Elizabethtown and New York is seeking the Democratic Party nomination. Stephen Burke, a Democrat from Macomb, suffered a setback in his effort when the state Board of Elections announced Wednesday they had invalidated his primary petitions.
