Syracuse, NY – On Saturday October 17th , Dana Balter for Congress and the DCCC launched a new TV ad that highlights Joe Biden and Dana Balter’s plan to support working families.
In the ad, the narrator notes that Donald Trump and John Katko have let corporate special interests write their own rules for years — a reference to John Katko’s vote for Donald Trump’s 2017 tax bill, which gives corporations a $750 billion tax windfall and put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block. The narrator then describes Joe Biden and Dana Balter’s plan to make the super rich and corporations finally pay their fair share while cutting taxes for working families, providing tax credits for childcare and caring for aging loved ones, and making healthcare more affordable.
In addition to voting for Trump’s 2017 tax bill, which hurt working families, John Katko has a long history of voting in favor of corporate special interests over his constituents. During the six years John Katko has been in office, he’s taken millions of dollars in campaign contributions from corporate PACs, including the gun lobby and pharmaceutical, insurance, oil, gas, and financial industries.
Balter’s new ad is her fourteenth of the general election. It will run in conjunction with the ad her campaign launched on Tuesday, in which Balter contrasts her support for Joe Biden with Rep. Katko’s support for Donald Trump.
Narrator: For the last four years, Donald Trump and John Katko have let corporate special interests write their own rules.
Joe Biden and Dana Balter have a better plan: Make the super rich and corporations finally pay their fair share, so we can cut taxes for working families, including tax credits for childcare and caring for aging loved ones – and make healthcare affordable.
Joe Biden and Dana Balter will bring people together to get it done.
Dana Balter: I’m Dana Balter, and I approve this message.
Dana Balter holds a strong position in the race. The latest polling in the race shows Balter leading Katko 45% to 42%, and the race is now ranked as ‘Toss-Up’ by The Cook Political Report, Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, and Politico. The Washington Post and Roll Call both rank NY-24 as one of the top 3 most vulnerable Republican House seats. In August, Vice President Joe Biden made Dana Balter his first House endorsement in the country and President Barack Obama included her among his first endorsements of the cycle.
