NRCC Backs Doug Hoffman: RNC Backs Doug Hoffman

The NRCC is backing Doug Hoffman, officially, for the NY23 Republican candidate, now that RINO DeDe Hoffman exited left. See post election update below.

Doug Hoffman

The NRCC released this statement yesterday (snippets):

With Assemblywoman Scozzafava suspending her campaign, we urge voters
to support Doug Hoffman’s candidacy in New York’s 23rd Congressional
District.

“He is the only active candidate in the race who supports lower taxes,
fiscal responsibility and opposes Nancy Pelosi’s agenda of
government-run healthcare, more government and less jobs.

“We look forward to welcoming Doug Hoffman into the House Republican
Conference as we work together for the good of our nation.”

From the RNC’s Michael Steele:

Effective immediately, the RNC will endorse and support the
conservative candidate in the race, Doug Hoffman. Doug’s campaign will
receive the financial backing of the RNC, and get-out-the-vote efforts
to defeat Bill Owens on Tuesday.

With three days to go to funnel some funds to Hoffman, I’m waiting for the NRCC’s next move, and it better be quick. A check of NRCC Chairman, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) website shows no official statement from him.

If you have not heard Newt Gingrich’s phenomenal statement about the Republican Party, read this: Age of Party Leaders Picking People is Over.
