Gov. Kathy Hochul Launches Ad Blitz to Kick Off General Election

Latest News

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul’s campaign kicked off the general election with a massive statewide TV and digital ad campaign highlighting Gov. Hochul’s nation-leading efforts to strengthen New York’s gun safety laws and slamming Lee Zeldin’s extremist record.

One of the several initial TV ads airing across the state, “The Day,” exposes Lee Zeldin’s far-right record, from voting against the 2020 election results to supporting far-right abortion bans without exceptions for rape or incest.

Another new TV ad, “Kid,” features a survivor of the tragic shooting at Tops supermarket in Buffalo and his mother. The ad emphasizes Gov. Hochul’s leading response to protect New Yorkers against gun violence.

The initial two million dollar media buy features both digital and bilingual television ads.

“Gov. Hochul is kicking off the general election highlighting the accomplishments she’s delivered for New Yorkers as governor,” said DGA Communications Director David Turner. “Meanwhile, Lee Zeldin is stuck running on his extreme and backward record of undermining democracy and supporting restrictions on reproductive freedoms. The contrast between the candidates in this race couldn’t be clearer.”
