In an interview with Nathan Brown on the AdirondackDailyEnterprise.com, the New Republican New York Party Chairman spoke about the part split on over the 23rd Congressional District’s special election. Doug Hoffman is running for the seat on the Conservative Party ticket after not getting the Republican nomination.
Chairman Ed Cox said the biggest issues that Conservatives have over Dede Scozzafava is social issues. He argued that in this current economic climate people who agree fiscally should stick together, “The social issues are not the biggest issues now… The biggest issues are economic issues. And that's around the country."
Cox also added there is room for different views in the party and Scozzafava can connect with union voters.
