Tolbert capitalizes on Obama's gaffe

By Jill Terreri

President Obama probably didn't think he would find himself in a campaign commercial for a candidate for mayor of Buffalo after he left town yesterday. But you might have heard that Obama mixed up Mayor Byron Brown and Rep. Brian Higgins during his appearance at the University at Buffalo, which Brown's opponent is happily reminding voters about.

(Brown took it in stride, and Higgins joked about it on Twitter:)

Bernie Tolbert's campaign wasted no time trying to use Obama's mix-up to their advantage, and is circulating a commercial for Tolbert starring Obama. (WNYMedia is on the Tolbert campaign payroll.)
