The more people learn about Scozzafava, the better I do is the take from Conservative Party candidate for Congress Doug Hoffman. Doug Hoffman, running in the New York 23rd District’s special election, made those statements in a special guest post on MichelleMalkin.com.
Hoffman’s post was spurred by the decision of Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, the Republican selected to run for the seat by party bosses, to sign Taxpayer Protection Pledge to not raise income taxes if elected to Congress. Hoffman said Assemblywoman Scozzafava signing the pledged was a stunt in an attempt to seem more conservative. Hoffman pointed out Assemblywoman Scozzafava mocked Hoffman for signing the pledge about two months before she signed the pledge.
Assemblywoman Scozzafava is liberal-leaning and is sliding in the polls. Only about half of Republicans are even backing her in a recent Siena College poll. Hoffman wrote that is for one simple reason, “The more [conservatives] learn about Dede Scozzafava, the worse she does in the polls. And the more they learn about my campaign, the better we do.”
