Today on the Eye on NY podcast:
• U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will hold a town hall meeting in the Rochester area Friday. It's the latest in a series of town hall meetings she has held across the state over the past year. Her first was in Syracuse last July.
• Speaking of Gillibrand, the Federal Election Commission filing is in for Republican Senate candidate Chele Farley. Hear how much money she raised and how much she has in the bank as she seeks to unseat Gillibrand, D-N.Y., in the New York U.S. Senate race.
• The main story today: U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney's campaign released its first TV ad of the 2018 election. Candidates usually use their initial spots to tout their records and highlight what they've done over the past two (or more) years. Tenney did some of that, but she also took aim at her Democratic challenger, Anthony Brindisi, and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
