State GOP chairman Ed Cox criticized Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand today for holding a fundraiser today in Geneva, Switzerland, saying “that the people she was elected to represent live in Geneva, N.Y., not Geneva, Switzerland.”
According to her campaign website, she’s being feted at the home of Anne-Shelton Aaron. Tickets range from $250 to to $2,500.
“People in Geneva, Switzerland may have more money than people in Geneva, N.Y., but that’s no excuse to be running around the globe on a fundraising junket while there is work to be done here at home,” Cox said in a statement.
Gillibrand, a Democrat, is seeking a full, six-year term in November.
