9th Senate District Candidates Release TV Spots

Last week, Nassau County Democratic State Senate candidate Todd Kaminsky released his first television ad in the special election to replaced former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. The 30-second commercial highlights Kaminsky’s resume, saying that he “cut his teeth” prosecuting both Republicans and Democrats while working as an assistant U.S. attorney.

Yesterday, Republican candidate Chris McGrath released his two television ads.  The first introduces the candidate to voters; the second warns that a Democratic victory in the race will reduce school aid to the district.

While this special election does not fall within Unshackle Upstate’s “geographic footprint,” we’re keeping a close eye on it because of its potential implications for political control of the State Senate.
