Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman will not be paying a visit to Washington D.C. like his rivals for the 23rd Congressional District special election to get campaign cash. Mark Weiner writes on Syracuse.com, “..both Republican Dede Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens will be rubbing elbows with their party's elite at big-donor fundraisers in Washington, D.C.”
This week Republicans will host a reception for Scozzafava, same goes for Democrats and their candidate Bill Owens.
But, it is not like Hoffman is not getting extra money from Washington. The conservative leaning Club for Growth, based in Washington, sponsored $250,000 in television ads attacking both Scozzafava and Owens.
