Delgado admits extreme and offensive rap lyrics reflect what he’d bring to Congress
WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released a new ad, “Mission,” in New York’s 19th Congressional District. The ad highlights Antonio Delgado admitting the content of his extreme and offensive rap lyrics are the same as his mission in Congress. The ad will run on television in the Albany and New York City media markets and on digital platforms throughout the district.
“Antonio Delgado’s extreme and offensive lyrics are only the beginning of his out-of-touch New York City agenda, and he says he’d bring the same ideals to Congress,” said Courtney Alexander, CLF Communications Director. “His lyrics are filled with sexist and anti-American rhetoric that attacks our democracy and mocks our values. After listening to Antonio Delgado’s extreme raps, it’s clear to Hudson Valley families that Delgado cannot be their voice in Congress.”
In addition to the ad campaign, CLF has opened a field office in New York’s 19th Congressional District. Each CLF field office is supported by a full-time staffer and hundreds of interns and volunteers who engage with voters on a daily basis through hyper-targeted phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.
