Harry Wilson is up with a new ad today, and the title–“Not a Politician“–pretty much says it all.
The first part restates Wilson’s criticism of his opponent, incumbent Tom DiNapoli, as a product of Albany, complete with a black and white picture of the statehouse looming in the background.
It then switches to a sunny shot of Wilson in front of a (non-state) house. He calls himself a “fiscal expert” and promises a line-by-line audit of the state budget.
The context of the race is changing rather quickly today–what with Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announcing that DiNapoli is not, in fact, under investigation by his office–which takes one of Wilson’s prime talking points off the table. One thing that hasn’t changed is Wilson’s financial advantage, which should keep ads like this coming on a fairly regular basis down the stretch run.
