Hoffman going positive with his advertising campaign. Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman’s first television a will be a positive, “introductory spot touting Hoffman’s fiscally conservative values”.
According to an article on CQPolitics.com written by Emily Cadei, the campaign had originally planned to run an attack ad on Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava. The ad was going to feature an Elvis impersonator drawing the comparison that Scozzafava is trying to impersonate a conservative. That Elvis add is on the internet, but it will not hit televisions.
The campaign may be leaving the negatives to others. The anti-tax “Club for Growth” political action committee has spent more than a quarter million dollars questioning the tax stands of both the Republican and Democratic candidate in the race.
The special elections is to replace Republican Rep. John M. McHugh, who is now Secretary of the Army.
