U.S. Senate hopeful Joe DioGuardi is out with his first television ad, a 30-second spot that knocks Congress for overspending.
“In Congress they use this card to vote, but they’ve turned it into the most expensive credit card in the world,” says DioGuardi, a former congressman from Westchester County. “And you get the bill.”
In the spot, which debuts on Thursday, DioGuardi highlights his time in the House and his work as a certified public accountant.View the ad here.
“This credit card is a ticking time bomb that cripples the economy, stops job creation and will make us poor,” he says while holding up his voting card.
DioGuardi is competing against former Nassau County Legislator Bruce Blakeman and economist David Malpass for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in November. DioGuardi is the first of the GOP challengers with a television ad.
