Control of the New York State Senate could come down to who has the best dance video.
Justin Wagner, a Democrat challenging state Sen. Greg Ball (R-Patterson) in a Hudson Valley district, released a new dance video on Thursday, weeks after Ball’s campaign released their own videos. While Ball’s video shows his campaign staff in a seemingly impromptu music-less dance, Wagner’s work appears a bit more coordinated. The Ball-Wagner race is one of the most competitive in the battle for control of the Senate. New York political blog Capitol Tonight first reported on the Wagner dance video.
In Wagner’s video, the candidate can be seen entering his campaign office and watching supporters dancing to Bill Clinton’s campaign theme song, “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.” The video shows Wagner staff and supporters dancing at the office, in a minivan and in restaurants. Wagner’s wife and baby daughter are also shown dancing in a pumpkin patch.
