A note posted on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page made it very clear who she supports in the special election in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, and it is not the Republican candidate.
Palin writes, “The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches!”
Doug Hoffman is the Conservative Party candidate who is running as the self-described only Conservative candidate in the race. Many conservative republicans are running from the liberal-leaning Republican hand-pick candidate Assembly woman Dede Scozzafava.
Palin also writes, “I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York's 23rd Congressional district… my political action committee, SarahPAC, (is donating) to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.” She continues, “And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine. Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.”
The former Alaska Governor ended the note by asking for people to donate money to Hoffman’s campaign.
