Nov 26, 2007 — North Country Republican Sandy Treadwell will air his first TV ads today. He's fighting off other republicans for the chance to face Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand in next year's 20th Congressional District race. Gillibrand is also running hard, raising money for what's expected to be one of the most intense and closely-watched Congressional races in the country. Treadwell is leading the GOP fundraising race, but Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand has a big dollar lead overall. Adirondack bureau chief Brian Mann has been following developments. He talked with Martha Foley this morning.
