DCCC reacts to Doheny win
June 26, 2012 - Chris Morris
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee just chimed in on Matt Doheny's primary victory over Kellie Greene:
Matt Doheny (NY-21) enters the general election having firmly cemented his position as the Tea Party candidate in a race against moderate Bill Owens. Putting aside any concerns from the extreme right wing of his party, Matt Doheny dismissed any possibility that he would bring a moderate approach to the job. “Matt Doheny sent a clear sign to North Country voters last week this that his priorities will be with the leadership of the far right of his party and not with middle class voters in his district when he admitted that he would choose protecting tax breaks for Big Oil over giving local businesses some tax relief,” said Josh Schwerin, Northeast Press Secretary at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Matt Doheny has made it abundantly clear the Republican budget that drastically cuts Medicare and forces seniors to pay more for health care isn’t extreme enough for his liking, he has chosen positions on legislation only after ensuring they don’t conflict with his partisan pledges, and predicted that there would be mass outrage from voters once they see his Tea Party voting record. Even the millions of dollars Doheny has made helping companies fire their employees won’t be enough to make voters forget his extreme record.
