Despite having a viable conservative candidate in Doug Hoffman, the GOP leaders hand-picked liberal Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava as the Republican nominee for the special election for New York’s 23rd Congressional District to replace former Republican Representative (and now Secretary of the Army) John McHugh.

Hoffman is a genuine Reagan conservative and NY-23 is a district that generally votes conservative. So, Republicans leaders can’t use the excuse that a so-called moderate Republican is needed to get elected in this district.

‘Dump Dede’ is the call from Tea Parties and limited government activists fighting the GOP for nominating a Rino.

NY-23 race is the first test of tea party power: Tea party activists from across the nation are rallying around the House special election in upstate New York, viewing it as the first electoral test of the nascent conservative movement’s political muscle.

What??? Newt, we already tried that strategy with John McCain which resulted with radical Obama in the White House.

Glenn Beck invites Hoffman to his show:

“I believe this is a defining moment for the party,” Mr. Hoffman told the radio host. “As a lifelong Republican, it’s time for me and everybody else to reclaim the soul of the Republican Party.”

Mr. Beck was impressed by Mr. Hoffman’s support for allowing competition between insurance companies across state lines.

“My platform is for less government regulations and red tape, less spending, less taxes and basically, getting our freedoms back that are being taken away one-by-one by the legislation that we see passing lately,” the candidate also told the radio host.

Mr. Hoffman said he does not support amnesty for illegal immigrants, but does support making regulations to document non-residents who decide to work in this country.

  1. […] the GOP – they work inside the Republican Party to undermine it and to benefit the Democrats. Dede Scozzafava, anyone? By running as an independent, Crist will only help the Democrats in the 2010 Senate race. […]

  2. […] in 2008 with McCain, and it gave us Obama. The GOP failed by supporting RINO Charlie Crist in FL, RINO Dede Scozzafava in NY, etc. Why would a leftist vote for a Republican behaving like a Democrat (i.e., RINO), when he can […]
