Groups rate Faso as national Republicans release another attack ad

Many groups are releasing Congressional ratings for representatives ahead of the mid-term elections in November. The Arts Action Fund’s 2018 Congressional Arts Report Card gave Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) an "A" rating. He got the high grade mostly for signing several letters with other representatives saying they were against cutting funding to federal arts programs and for participating in the 2018 annual Congressional Art Competition. The American Civil Liberties Union, on the other hand, gives Faso an 18 percent rating. Faso voted against curtailing government spying on Americans, and voting for a mass deportation bill that would expand mandatory detentions of immigrants. Faso is running against Democrat Antonio Delgado in November. The NRCC released another attack television ad against Delgado Sept. 18. Like their other ad, this one is more a negative music review of Delgado's 2006 hip hop album, that distorts his lyrics claiming Delgado's songs are against "the War on Terror" and minimize the 9/11 terrorist attack.
