Doug Hoffman, New York Conservative Party History in the Making - New York 23rd District - image:4.pb.blogspot
The Republicanrunning in the New York 23rd District, Dede Scozzafava, has taken herself out of the race, leaving the Conservative Candidate Doug Hoffman poised to make history. Hoffman, who had closed within a point of Democrat Bill Owns according to polls taken before Scozzafava announcement, will now, in all likelihood, surge past Owens on Tuesday to be the New York Conservative Party’s first Representative in the United States Congress.
Ms. Scozzafava suspended her campaign today, once it was determined by the latest polls that she could not possibly win. In a statement she thanked her supporters and acknowledging that her name would still appear on the ballot, indicated that those supporters were free to put their support where they chose.
It is now likely that on Tuesday, both New York, and the Governor’s seats in New Jersey and Virginia will be held by conservatives.
