      Kirsten Gillibrand establishes campaign beachhead in Downtown Albany!

      ALBANY, NY -- (03/01/2006; 1600)(EIS) -- Hailing her latest campaign
      move as "the right choice", New York Republican State Chairman Stephen
      Minarik today offered his sincere best wishes to Kirsten Gillibrand in
      her upcoming primary with long-time Albany Congressman Michael
      McNulty. Gillibrand, a long-time downstate resident who is a partner
      with the Westchester-based law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner, has
      established her campaign headquarters at 10 North Pearl Street, in the
      City of Albany, located in the heart of the 21st Congressional

      "Actions certainly do speak louder than words. For someone who wants
      to represent the 20th Congressional District, it looks like Ms.
      Gillibrand has decided to take her battle to Congressman McNulty,
      rather than Congressman Sweeney," Chairman Minarik stated. "For
      someone who is the descendent of an Albany Democratic icon, I find it
      amusing that she would seek to position herself to challenge the
      descendent of another Albany Democratic icon. However, considering
      Congressman John Sweeney's unparalleled record of service and results
      for the Capital District, Ms. Gillibrand's challenge to Congressman
      McNulty is certainly a move in the right direction."

      Minarik's came after the Howard Dean-inspired organization Democracy
      for the Hudson-Mohawk Region publicized Gillibrand's campaign
      headquarters in an attached e-mail to their cadre of local, left-wing
      activists. True to form, Gillibrand, who donated $2,000 to Howard
      Dean's 2004 Presidential Campaign, picked a campaign location that
      featured a Starbucks coffee shop!

      "The actions of the Gillibrand campaign only reinforce the notion that
      Kirsten Gillibrand is the wrong candidate, running in the wrong
      district, for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time," Chairman Minarik

      The Glens Falls Post-Star (Thompson, 2/23/06) recently noted that
      eight of the top 10 zip codes contributing to Gillibrand's campaign
      were located in New York City. These eight zip codes contributed a
      staggering $110,350 to the Gillibrand campaign.

      In addition, Gillibrand, who retained residences in New York City and
      Westchester County until recently, has donated a staggering $46,225 in
      campaign contributions to Democratic candidates through the years -
      but not one cent to candidates in the 20th Congressional District.
      Among the benefits of her largesse are the Democratic National
      Committee ($8,250), Upper East Side Assemblyman Jonathan Bing ($650),
      and the Democratic Committee of Ohio ($250).

      "Someone should really get Kirsten Gillibrand a map," concluded
      Chairman Minarik.
