Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in the NY-23 special election, puts out a flag-waving statement on the GOP candidate’s surprising, 11th-hour surrender. Hoffman defines the race, as conservatives have defined it for weeks, as between his Mr. Smith persona and the forces of ACORN, Nancy Pelosi, and union thugs. From the campaign:
This morning’s events prove what we have said for the last week; this campaign is a horserace between me and Nancy Pelosi’s handpicked candidate, Bill Owens. At this moment, the Democratic Party, the Working Families Party, ACORN, Big Labor and pro-abortion groups are flooding the district with troops and they are flooding the airwaves with a million dollars worth of negative ads. They are throwing mud; they are trying to stop me.
It’s time for us to send a message to Washington—we’re sick and tired of big-spending, high-taxing, career politicians and by voting for me on Tuesday you will send that message loud and clear.
