NY-23: New York Post for Hoffman

The Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid doesn’t have many subscribers in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, the far upstate district where Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman is rallying support from the right. But days after giving Hoffman prime op-ed space, it endorsed him today. Most of the endorsement is an indictment of Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava and of the process that put her on the ballot.

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

And not only on social matters, like same-sex marriage and abortion. In Albany, Scozzafava has been such a profligate tax-and-spender, she can almost make Speaker Sheldon Silver blush.

With the backing of the ACORN-allied Working Families Party, she supports Big Labor’s favorite organizing bill — card-check — as well as the federal stimulus, opposed by every House Republican.
