Spot details profane, extreme rhetoric coming straight from the candidate’s mouth

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new television and digital ad, “Voice,” in New York’s 19th Congressional District. The ad highlights Antonio Delgado’s extreme beliefs and hateful rhetoric that is filled with sexist and anti-American language that minimizes the 9/11 tragedy. The ad will run on television and digital platforms in the Albany and New York City media markets.

“Antonio Delgado put his anti-American and sexist views on record for all to hear and parents should be fully informed of these views before making their choice for Congress,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “Delgado tried to make money by recording his extreme, anti-American beliefs by selling them to teenagers, now that he’s running for Congress, he shouldn’t be able to hide his hateful rhetoric and unacceptable lyrics minimizing the 9/11 tragedy. Hudson Valley voters absolutely deserve to know the positions of their candidates, and anyone who claims otherwise shouldn’t be running for elected office.”

This is CLF’s first television ad in New York’s 19th Congressional District. In addition to the ad campaign, CLF has opened a field office in New York’s 19th Congressional District. Each CLF field office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.
