NY Post Endorses Conservative Hoffman

Tuesday, 27 Oct 2009 12:50 PM

The New York Post has spurned both the Republican and Democratic candidates in New York's 23rd Congressional District special election and instead endorsed the Conservative Party candidate, accountant Doug Hoffman.

Republican Dede Scozzafava, a member of the State Assembly, and Democrat Bill Owens, a businessman, are seeking to fill the seat vacated by Republican John M. McHugh, who resigned in September to become Secretary of the Army.

The Post rejects Scozzafava for the seat in this predominantly GOP district "because so many of her positions ill-serve the interests of New York and the nation...

"A Republican should adhere to certain minimum GOP principles. Scozzafava is just too far to the left too often."

Scozzafava is pro-choice, supports same-sex marriage, backed the federal stimulus package and is a "profligate tax-and-spender," Tuesday's editorial in the Post states.

"Hoffman, by contrast, understands the dangers of unchecked spending, monster deficits and ever-higher taxes — i.e., the concerns of average working Americans...

"Voters in this traditionally GOP district can send a useful message — by sending Doug Hoffman to Congress."
