A congressional candidate’s use of the term “got milk money?” in campaign ads has created controversy in New York State.

“In the case of this campaign, the democratic candidate is taking advantage of the downtimes of us farmers by using that as part of his campaign slogan to gain sympathy. It’s absolutely wrong,” New York dairy farmer John Peck told a Syracuse, N.Y., TV station.

Peck is referring to the campaign of Bill Owens in New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

The Nov. 3 election between Owens and two other candidates has drawn national attention.
