The Fray: Schmitt releases web ad for Assembly race

Colin Schmitt, a New Windsor Republican planning to run for Assembly seat this fall, has released an Internet campaign ad that will soon be aired in the 99th Assembly District.

The 2 minute, 30 second commercial features scenes from Schmitt’s campaign kickoff in New Windsor on April 9, and excerpts of speeches that Schmitt and supporters such as Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus and Assemblyman Karl Brabenec made at that event.

Schmitt is seeking the Assembly seat now held by James Skoufis, a Woodbury Democrat serving his second term in Albany. Skoufis, who had considering running for Senate this year, announced last month he would forego a Senate run and seek reelection to the Assembly instead. The 99th District consists of nine Orange County towns and Stony Point in Rockland.

Here’s Schmitt’s forthcoming ad:
