Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate and de facto last-minute Republican nominee who narrowly lost the NY-23 special election to Democrat Bill Owens this past Tuesday, isn’t done yet with politics — he’s headed down South, to speak at a North Carolina Republican event.
As Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling (D) reports:
I’ve been pretty sure the Republicans will get back control of the North Carolina legislature next year but now I’m not underestimating their chances to defeat themselves.
Just got an e-mail from the party that they’re bringing in Doug Hoffman to speak at their Hall of Fame dinner in a couple weeks. The same Doug Hoffman of course who managed to blow a Congressional seat the party had held for over a century.
