Former Republican Governor of New York endorses Third Party candidate…

Ben Smith on published a statement former New York Governor George Pataki’s endorsement of Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in New York’s 23rd Congressional Special Election.

Pataki, a Republican, did not mention liberal-leaning Republican backed Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava and only said Doug Hoffman was the correct candidate to vote for in the race.

Pataki said, “…I’m deeply concerned about the course of our nation and the outcome of the election in the 23rd Congressional District… we cannot afford another vote for higher taxes, we cannot afford another vote for government run health care and we absolutely cannot afford another vote to take away from hard working men and women the right to secret ballot. That is why tonight, I’m proud to endorse Doug Hoffman, a Republican, running on the Conservative line for Congress in the 23rd Congressional District… And Doug Hoffman can win.
