The video shows Senator Kirsten Gillibrand saying “Thank you Charlie” while a rock song is heard in the background, with a male vocalist singing, “Bad things come in twos.”

GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is out with a TV ad hitting Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Cuomo for supporting the development of an Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero.

Here’s the New York State Democratic Party’s latest video, dubbing Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio “a Bonus Baby,” for getting $1.3 million from JP Morgan, which received federal aid during the Wall Street meltdown.
The ad, it’s worth noting, is not coming directly from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo’s campaign, but it’s clear the way they want to handle Lazio is by tying him personally to Wall Street, bonuses and bailouts.
The goal is force Lazio into defending Wall Street, which isn't too common right now, as this front-page Washington Post story about Democratic congressional candidate Reshma Saujani makes clear.
