New York's junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, isn't wasting any time following last night's primary elections.
The Democrat, who was appointed to the seat by Gov. David Paterson after Hillary Clinton's rise to Secretary of State, will square-off with Republican Joe DioGuardi in November.
Gillibrand's campaign staff announced today it will immediately begin airing television ads in western New York.
The ads will hit airwaves this week in Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse. Gillibrand leads DioGuardi in fundraising and in the polls.
This from the Associated Press:
The ads promote Gillibrand as a reform-minded senator devoted to public transparency. In the ad, Gillibrand says she hasn't been in Washington long, but she has been there long enough to know that things are broken.
