Doug Hoffman writes letter on conservative blog redstate.com. Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman explained why they should vote for him, and why he could not get the Republican nomination for the New York Congressional Special Election for District 23.
The letter starts with Hoffman writing, “I am not your run of the mill politician (maybe that’s why the NRCC didn’t like me).” His letter continued to explain that he is concerned with a high tax rate and the national debt.
His letter wrapped-up with comparing his campaign to the 1980 US Olympic Hockey “Miracle on Ice” team. Hoffman was a corporate comptroller for the 1980 Winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid. Candidate Hoffman pointed to the hockey team’s defeat of the Russian team raising national pride. Hoffman said his candidacy could do the same thing, and “send a message to Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi … and set the stage for us to reclaim our national pride and our American values.”
