Pataki Endorses Hoffman, Game Over for Scozzafava
Former NY Governor George Pataki’s endorsement of Doug Hoffman for Congress is as far as I’m concerned the most meaningful endorsement in the race yet. With national Republicans having gotten involved, many to shore up their “conservative bonafides” (i.e. most of whom randomly endorsed for their own political gain), Pataki would only have gotten involved if Hoffman was the best chance we had to win.
A week ago, this race could have gone either way. While I think this race sets a horrible precedent for us as a party, supporting conservative candidates over our parties nominees, I understand the importance of retaining this seat.
That all said, I just donated to Doug Hoffman. If you feel like doing so, you can here.
