Joshua Solomon reports in the Times Union that advertisements for and against Rep. Marc Molinaro launched on streaming services, broadcast stations, and billboards this week, a year ahead of his election. The Congressional Integrity Project, a nonprofit run by a former Democratic operative, is targeting many New York Republicans in the House of Representatives, including Molinaro, with its ads. Meanwhile, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the New York State Business Council, put together ads celebrating Molinaro and two other New York-based House Republicans. And neither group is saying who is funding the ad campaigns. Republicans won 11 of 26 congressional seats in the 2022 election, swinging the House to GOP control. New York, analysts say, will be a battleground for control of the House of Representatives again in 2024. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
