Three quick stories in one post.
On his Facebook status update Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman said, “The Conservative Victory Fund (CVF), the nation's oldest conservative campaign committee, has endorsed me today. #ny23 #tcot #ftrs”. Looking for a second source we went to Conservative Victory Fund’s website, and did not find anything, but we’ll trust Hoffman.
Meantime, Reid Wilson writes on TheHill.com that the Republican National Committee is now seriously backing the liberal-leaning and party hand-picked Republican Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava. Wilson wrote, “The RNC will give $85,000 to the coordinated campaign efforts, the maximum allowed by federal law… the RNC will give the New York state Republican Party what a source described as a six-figure transfer in order to run more advertising (for Scozzafava)… the RNC has sent two paid staffers to help Scozzafava.”
Wilson added, “The NRCC has poured $567,000 into the race so far, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.”
Not to leave out Democrat Bill Owens, President Barack Obama has a fundraiser scheduled with Owens on Tuesday.
