Gillibrand ties rival to Washington

Senator Gillibrand's latest campaign ad hits her Republican rival, noting not too subtly that he had a spotty record as a congressman in Washington.

At one point, a list of Joe DioGuardi's unflattering record ("big-spending congressman, tax violations, lobbyist") is listed alongside an image of DioGuardi. Then, his image fades away and is replaced with a dimly lit shot of the Capitol building - because really, who wants to be associated with Washington these days.
