Media questions endorsement of Conservative Party candidate in the New York 23rd Congressional seat. MSNBC’s “First Read” column questions if the conservative Club for Growth's backing of Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman could end-up in having the Democrat win the seat due to the right splitting it's votes.
The Republican Party endorsed candidate is Dede Scozzafava. Scozzafava was dubbed a “socially moderate/liberal GOP” in the “First Read” column.
But, Hoffman is not the only person with Third Party involvment. That's were the concerns start, The New York State Independence Party is backing Scozzafava. The Independence backing may be fine with most conservatives, but many conservatives are concerned with Scozzafava connections to the liberal and ACORN-connected Working Families Party.
