The campaign of Republican comptroller candidate Harry Wilson responded to a mailer and attack ads from his with a fact sheet refuting claims made by his Democratic foe Thomas DiNapoli.
“For the entirety of this campaign, Tom DiNapoli has said little that is either true or substantive,” said the Wilson campaign. “As we enter the closing stages of this campaign, Mr. DiNapoli persists in repeating distortions or outright fabrications, rather than either providing a prescription for badly needed reform or defending his 23-year record of voting for higher taxes and reckless borrowing schemes.”
A Siena poll released last week showed DiNapoli, the incumbent, leading Wilson by double digit percentage points. But 19 percent of voters polled said they didn’t know enough about either candidate to respond. That means this week will probably be a nasty one between both DiNapoli and Wilson as each side tries to define itself.
