Sweeney Holding His Ground... in DC... not NY-20

Cross posted from The 10,000 Things

Our friends over at News Copy, New York (a very good blog for reading up on the Republican side of things by the way) seem to be big fans of Rep. John Sweeney. Fair enough. It would be nice however, if they got all their facts straight... or at least shared all of them... while engaging in defense of their favorite son.

(Speaking of favorite sons they seem quite fond of Democrat Tom Suozzi over there as well - given the state of affairs amongst Republican Gubernatorial candidates I can understand why they would like a quality Democrat and given the dearth of quality Republican candidates at any high level it becomes easy to understand why they are trying so hard to find likeable qualities in John Sweeney)

As posted here previously Mr. Sweeney's calls for new Republican leadership...

NY-20: Don't buy "red" in the 20th!

Don't indirectly contribute to John Sweeney's re-election campaign! Avoid doing business with these "red" firms which have been major contributors to Sweeney's re-election campaign this cycle. Personally, I don't think any progressives, liberals, and Democrats should have the time of day to waste on companies trying to support a right-wing agenda and the re-election of a corrupt, right-wing congressman.

NY-20: Sweeney's new misleading radio ads

Bumped from the diaries -- Jonathan... New York's 20th district, where Kirsten Gillibrand is offering a strong challenge to John Sweeney, is definitely among he Democrats' best pick-up opportunities in the House this fall. To help make a difference in the race (and in the campaign to retake the House this fall), visit Gillibrand's ActBlue page and throw her campaign a few dollars.

Rep. John Sweeney's new series of radio ads, focused predominantly on health care pork barrel projects, and primarily targeted at a rural audience (the Adirondack region of the district) are once again running away from Rep. Sweeney's biggest weakness - his voting record. Not to mention that these ads are once again continuing to tell that bald faced lie that he's somehow "independent."
