In an article written by Michael Patrick Leahy on TCOTReport.com, Republican Party Chairman of Oneida County George Joseph is ripping his own party’s candidate in New York’s 23rd Congressional District special election.
He said the election is over for the Republicans, “Do I write off this election? Absolutely. Unless something – a revelation comes through regarding Hoffman, or there’s a change in events for the Democrats — the Democrat’s going to win. That’s how we lose elections.”
Joseph questioned Republican party bosses selecting Dede Scozzafava for the election. The report quoets Joseph as saying, “Just with [Dede] coming out of Albany — any legislator in Albany is so tarnished why would we nominate them ? We acted very tone deaf in how we selected this nominee.”
