The National Republican Congressional Committee says Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman cannot win the special election in New York’s 23Rd Congressional District.
Alex Isenstadt writes on Politico.com, “The NRCC plans to spend between $200,000 and $300,000 on TV ads in the final week-and-a-half of the campaign. The ads will focus on Owens and Scozzafava and will not mention Hoffman.”
They are continuing to back Assemblywoman Scozzafava saying she has the ground support to win in the district.
The article quotes an unnamed GOP source saying, “I have yet to see a poll that shows a path to victory for the Conservative… They have no base.” That same official told Isenstadt that Republicans backing Hoffman are dealing with, “hopes and dreams.”
Sorry for the pun, but we’ll have to wait a few more days to find-out who has a great dream and who is having a nightmare.
