NY-23 Smackdown

John Gizzi gets top billing today at Human Events and is covering NY-23.

“The mayor of Plattsburgh just endorsed us and ten more [Republican town] committee members came out for Doug.  And ten more congressman endorsed him today.  We’re on a roll!  The debate’s starting — gotta go.”  That was my conversation yesterday with Rob Ryan, spokesman for Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman in New York’s 23rd District. Ryan was breaking the big news to me:  that more local Republican Party officials and elected officials in and out of the upstate district were crossing party lines to back Hoffman over liberal GOP nominee Dede Scozzafava.
