A Republican-aligned outside group is airing a TV ad slamming New York Rep. Timothy H. Bishop on his support for the Affordable Care Act.  

The Democrat is locked in a challenging re-election campaign against Republican Lee Zeldin.  

This is American Action Network's first independent expenditure TV ad of the general election. It's running on cable and online, and is part of AAN's $1.2 million IE campaign in New York's Long Island-based 1st District.  

"Tim Bishop thinks Obamacare is a damn good idea?" says a man named John from Setauket, N.Y. "We think it's a damn bad idea." www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw4wr6dnPaM The group also posted online a polling memo from Public Opinion Strategies that showed the race in a statistical tie.  

The race is rated Leans Democratic by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
