    Oh boy..Another Politician that can’t take a beating and just go away..Sound like someone familier?..Like Sarah Palin maybe?

    For those of you who can’t remember this guy, He’s the one who couldn’t name a single issue of importance to the NY23 district..He was also the first Tea-Partier to run in an election..He helped Democrats win a seat they hadn’t held in over 100 years..

    I sure hope he is as successful this time around!

    Yet, he didn't lose by much, and that was without the backing of the republican party. If he has the backing of the republican party, then maybe it'll make the difference.

    I personally don't care too much.

    He also had the personal endorsements of Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the majority of the Republican right wing

    He also managed to lose a seat that was in Republican hands for 150 years

    Not really. Had Hoffman won the seat still wouldn't have been in Republican hands. He was not the Republican candidate.

    Hoffman will probably lose. Even the most republican parts of New York State are more moderate than Hoffman. I've spent a lot of time working on local elections in that area (The North Country). The only reason I didn't work on that race is because Owens ran out of money and couldn't afford us.

    at least get your facts straight! Hoffman ran as the "Conservative Party" candidate, not a Republican or Tea Party candidate. Had Dede Scozzafava (or whatever her name was) won, we'd have still had a Democrat in the seate. She's a liberal, a RINO. No loss.

    I'd trade the Governor's seat in NJ and VA over one insignificant congressional district any day. Conservatives win when they are CONSERVATIVE. You'll see that in November.....

    Well, now that he can get the party nod, I expect he will win.

    He had amazing support as he ran as a conservative. He will keep that support easily and the other Republicans will likely back him as well. Democrats dont have a chance. It's not a 3 man race now.
