Plattsburgh, NY, Sep 16, 2010 — While Republicans are still sorting out their primary results from this week's election in the 23rd district, Democrat Bill Owens began broadcasting his first campaign ad yesterday.
Owens, a businessman and attorney from Plattsburgh, holds a sizable fundraising lead over his Republican and Conservative opponents.
Owens faces a national mood that appears to be running strongly against Democrats.
But he enters the fall campaign with a unified party, and support from at least some Republicans.
Owens spoke yesterday with Brian Mann about the contest going forward.
