Ad Highlights Hochul’s Independence and Willingness to Take on Tough Issues

Clarence, NY — Yesterday Kathy Hochul, candidate for Congress in New York’s 27th District, released her first television advertisement of the 2012 election, entitled“Tough Choices.”

Hochul continues to develop a reputation of bucking her own party when representing her district. The 30 second ad spotlights a sampling of votes that support that fact.

“Kathy has always been known for her independence, and that’s the same approach she brings to her job representing Western New York,” said Campaign Manager Frank Thomas. “We are going to continue to talk about Kathy’s leadership in support of the Balanced Budget Amendment and her votes to cut foreign aid to Pakistan as examples of how she’s cut through partisan Washington politics. It’s her bipartisan leadership on the tough issues that have established her as an effective, independent voice for Western New York.”

We all know why congress doesn’t work.
Tough choices need to be made, and Washington doesn’t make tough choices.
I’m Kathy Hochul, and that’s why I voted for the Balanced Budget Amendment.
It forces Congress to make tough choices.
And it’s why I voted to cut foreign aid to Pakistan.
Pakistan still harbors al Qaeda terrorists and endangers our troops, but almost everybody in Washington says you can’t cut their aid.
I approve this message, because I’d like to know why not.
