Rachel Silberstein is reporting for Capitol Confidential the labor union 1199SEIU has chosen the one-year anniversary of the passage of the American Health Care Act to launch a radio and print ad campaign reminding local voters that three New York representatives supported that version of the bill. The ad campaign targets John Faso, who represents the 19th congressional district, as well as Elise Stefanik, of the 21st district and Claudia Tenney of the 22nd, all Republicans. “We’re certain that Congressman X was hoping you forgot his/her vote.
