New York’s 22nd (NY - 22)

Overview

Brandon Williams is too extreme for voters in the NY-22 congressional district, and as a former Wall Street Banker, Williams puts himself ahead of us.

Summary

Voters  in the Syracuse and Utica media market need to see broadcast TV ads; women, voters in the city of  Syracuse, and voters of color need to see on cable TV; OTT subscribers district-wide need to see ads; and voters across the district, but especially young voters, voters of color, and voters in the Utica media market need to see digital ads about:

  • The Supreme Court has overturned 50 years of law and declared that a woman no longer has the right to an abortion.
  • Brandon Williams is an extremist from Texas, part of the new MAGA wing of the Republican Party. Williams would support outlawing a woman’s  right to choose — do away with it altogether, with no exceptions.  He’s just too extreme.  Williams supports allowing politicians to ban all abortions — even for victims of rape and incest, and when the life of the mother is at risk. Williams called the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade a “monumental victory” and would support overturning New York laws that guarantee a woman’s right to an abortion.

Voters in the Syracuse and Utica media markets, especially women, voters of color and voters in Syracuse, Rome, and Utica, need to see broadcast, OTT, and on cable TV ads that say:

  • Brandon Williams is an extremist from Texas, part of the new MAGA wing of the Republican Party that is pushing an extreme agenda that would harm working families. He opposed legislation to allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and cap the cost of insulin at $35 a month for seniors and would even allow health insurance premiums to skyrocket for “tens of thousands of New Yorkers.”

Voters in the Syracuse and Utica media markets, especially women, voters of color and voters in Syracuse, Rome, and Utica, need to see broadcast, OTT, and on cable TV ads that say:

  • Brandon Williams is an extreme MAGA Republican from Texas who would put our national security at risk. He founded a tech company with a trail of corporate ties leading back to the Chinese Communist Party.  We need leaders who will stand up to China, not a MAGA extremist who puts our national security at risk.

Voters across the district, but especially voters of color and voters in the Utica media market, need to see a digital program that begins in week 10 on Facebook/Instagram, YouTube, and programmatic video platforms that says:

  • Brandon Williams is an extremist from Texas, part of the new MAGA wing of the Republican Party that is pushing an extreme agenda that would harm working families. He opposed legislation to allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and cap the cost of insulin at $35 a month for seniors and would even allow health insurance premiums to skyrocket for “tens of thousands of New Yorkers.”

  • Regarding abortion, tone is important — it’s not scary or angry or over the top. It’s clear-eyed, matter-of-fact, and non-sensationalized that Brandon Williams does not share our values — told from the point of view of real doctors, nurses, and victims of rape — from the district.
  • Regarding Williams’s economic agenda — it’s important to see blue collar workers upset about how Williams has profited at our risk and expense — making money and even personally investing in companies that have shipped American jobs to China.
  • The Syracuse and Utica media markets are of equal importance
