Democrat Dollinger’s ‘Values’ Ad

Ad man Jimmy Siegel, who worked for both Spitzer and Clinton, is out with a new television ad for Democratic State Senate candidate Rick Dollinger, who is trying to unseat Republican incumbent Joe Robach.

Lots of close-ups and soaring music. 

A poll last week showed Robach leading Dollinger 49-38 in the heavily Democratic district, which might have something to do with the appearance of the ad, as well as yesterday’s endorsement from David Paterson, who calls Dollinger a "friend."

Paterson, who has tried to stay away from taking sides in the State Senate elections, will also attend a fund-raiser for Dollinger.
