Doug Hoffman NY-23

If you haven’t been following this race, it’s important you do so.  A very liberal Republican was nominated by the party in New York (Suprise Suprise), but the Conservative Party in NY has nominated Doug Hoffman and the latest polls show him ahead in the race.  He needs your help, send him $50 or more if you can.

Do you think that Newt Gingrich will pick up the phone to tell Fred Thompson that he’s “misinformed”?  I wouldn’t mind hearing that conversation.  Former Senator and presidential aspirant Thompson’s ad hit last night:

If you back Hoffman over Dede Scozzafava, Newt says you’re just not paying attention:

There’s more than a whiff of desperation in this attempt to paint Scozzafava as the true conservative in this race. Gingrich would do better to argue for party loyalty than to defend Scozzafava as a Reagan Republican.

Fred’s ad will play in NY-23, while Fred sends this out to his PAC to get more Hoffman contributions:

TO:     FredPAC Supporters

FROM:   Will Andrews

Exciting news!

As you know, Senator Thompson has been actively backing Conservative Republican candidate Doug Hoffman for Congress in a Special Election in New York.

Just moments ago, a TV commercial was released featuring Senator Thompson.  The Hoffman campaign is airing the spot throughout the district in the final days! …

This ad will help “seal the deal” – it sets out clearly what is at stake in this election.

Your support of Fred PAC is making it possible for real, conservatives dedicated to First Principles to advance throughout the country.  But there is still so much more to do.

Please, if at all possible, send the largest contribution you can to Fred PAC today.  You can donate by going to

A victory in New York next week will be a resounding call to arms for all conservatives in America.  Please do all you can to help spread the message to return our nation to the Founding Principles.

Newt’s talking about a 2012 run at the Presidency, but if he keeps defending Scozzafava, he may become a Party of One.

    Kudos to Dede Scozzafava, RINO-NY, for suspending her campaign. Now the voters of the 23rd district of NY can more readily choose among ideas, rather than parties. No matter the outcome, that’s a good thing.

    On a related note, isn’t it curious how most people aspire to and revere a campaign “about ideas,” yet disdain “ideological candidates?”

  • Jim Carson

    I take back the kudos to Scozzafava. She endorsed the Democrat. Not surprisingly, loyalty to her principles trumped her loyalty to party.

    The problem always was, her principles are steeped in Big Government.

    PROVING HER CRITICS RIGHT: Scozzafava Endorses Democrat.

    UPDATE: Reader Erik Fortune writes: “Scozzafava hasn’t just proven her critics right, she’s also made fools of the GOP establishment that backed her. The establishment argument for supporting Scozzafava boiled down to an appeal to party loyalty, and Scozzafava just demonstrated that she has none. Gingrich et al asked voters to compromise their values on behalf of a candidate who turned on them the first chance she got. The voters won’t forget that.” Ouch.

    ANOTHER UPDATE: A question: “Now that she’s withdrawn and endorsed the Democratic candidate, can the Republican Party ask for their $900,000 back? Can individuals who contributed to her under the impression that she was a Republican ask for their money back?” They can ask, but unlike with businesses there’s no implied warranty of good faith in politics . . . .

    MORE: Scozzafava on Friday: “I have been a Republican my entire life, I will be a Republican until I die. I believe in the Republican party that stands for less government interference in the lives of individuals. I believe in self-sufficiency versus government dependence. I believe in lower taxes, less government regulation, I believe in less government spending.” Like I say, you can’t sue politicians for breach of warranty the way you can sue businesses. If you could, politicians would have to be more trustworthy.

    I suspect that the evangelical dominance in the Republican Party will result in the party being relegated to a third party. I wonder if we may see a shift from the two parties we have known? At any rate, if traditional republicans are leaving, it is not because they have suddenly become democrats. Rather, they are being pushed out. I have posted that this will hurt the GOP. See:
