A Democratic source passed along the following mailer going out to homes in the Ninth Congressional District that takes aim at Bob Turner for comment he made to the editorial boards of the New York Daily News and The New York Post.
On on side is pictured a retiree and on the other a firefighter, and the mailer warns that “Tea Party Bob Turner” is an extremist who wants to cut social security and Medicare benefits and deny 9/11 first responders health benefits in order to protect “tax breaks for the ultra-rich.”
Both The Daily News and The Post endorsed Mr. Turner, and so the ad seems at least partly designed to neutralize those endorsements by using Mr. Turner’s words to the papers against them.
