Hoffman likes Long, too
June 25, 2012 - Chris Morris
Lake Placid accountant Doug Hoffman knows who he's voting for in tomorrow's Republican Senate primary.
"I am proud and honored to endorse Wendy Long for the U.S. Senate," Hoffman said in a press release issued this morning. "Wendy Long’s background as high ranking staffer for two conservative Republican Senators, and the fact that she served as a law clerk to Judge Ralph K. Winter of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York, and then to Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court of the United States, makes her uniquely qualified to represent New York State in the U.S. Senate."
Hoffman ran for Congress twice, losing first to Democrat Bill Owens in the general election, and later to Matt Doheny in the Republican primary. He entertained the possibility of a third House run earlier this year, as well as a possible run for Teresa Sayward's Assembly seat.
Hoffman ended up staying on the side lines this year. "Wendy is a constitutional scholar who will be a vocal advocate for 2nd Amendment rights, a staunch supporter of the sanctity of human life and a fiscal conservative who will fight to lower taxes and reduce wasteful government spending so we can put a stop to deficit spending and rein in the ever growing national debt," he said. "Wendy also understands that big government simply can’t create good paying jobs; only the private sector can do that.
"That’s why she will fight for tax cuts so that small businesses across New York and the nation have the capital they need to grow, expand and create jobs. Wendy Long will be a great Senator for the North Country and for all New Yorkers and that’s why I’m asking my supporters to vote for her in the June 26th Republican Primary," Hoffman added.
Republican voters head to the polls tomorrow to select candidates for House and Senate races.
