Remember Doug Hoffmann?

He’s calling it quits: 

Statement by Doug Hoffman, Conservative Party Candidate for Congress (NY-23) 

Doug Hoffman said, “I entered the 23rd Congressional District race for the good of our nation and to represent the common sensebeliefs and values of the voters of upstate New York.  Our nation is at a crossroads and it is imperative that on Election Day wewrest control of Congress from Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat majority. 

“It was never my intention to split the Republican vote in the 23rd District.  So today, I withdraw as a candidate from this race. Under New York State Election Law my name cannot be removed from the Conservative Party line on the ballot. However, I stronglyurge and request that my supporters not vote for me and certainly not vote for the Democrat or Working Families Party candidate.   

“Matt Doheny and I may have differed on some issues during the course of our primary race. Now, we must put those differences asideand do what is best for our nation. So today, I am asking all my supporters to cast their vote for Matt Doheny on Election Day,November 2nd. 

“I want to offer heartfelt thanks to Chairman Mike Long and the New York State Conservative Party, to my staff, volunteers andsupporters who all worked tirelessly on my campaign. I’d also like to thank everyone who offered me hospitality, warmth andencouragement as I crisscrossed the Congressional District, your generosity of spirit and your belief in our nation was always aninspiration and shall never be forgotten.”
