Could Republican Mike Huckabee backing the Conservative Party candidate in New York's special election? Aaron Blake writes on the TheHill.com, that former Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee maybe siding with the Conservative Party candidate in New York’s special election of the 23rd Congressional District and ignoring the Republican backed candidate.
The article said, “… former GOP presidential candidate will be speaking at an event for the Conservative Party in upstate New York…”. Huckabee’s appearance could be seen as another Republican backing the Conservative Party candidate over Republican-selected Dede Scozzafava in the special election.
Former Republican Presidential candidate Fred Thompson has backed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman instead of Republican Scozzafava. The article say Huckabee is schedule to be at a dinner supporting The Conservative Party, but not necessarily their candidate Hoffman.
The article states Huckabee will be speaking at a dinner, “…just outside the 23rd district’s western border. Three counties in the 23rd are participating. It’s not clear whether there is any connection between the special election and Huckabee’s speaking engagement.”
