Hoffman Surges Ahead in NY-23 Race… RINO Scozzafava Campaigns With RINO Susan Collins… NRCC to Spend $300K on Dede
The poll of 300 likely voters, conducted October 24-25, 2009, shows Conservative Doug Hoffman at 31.3%, Democrat Bill Owens at 27.0%, Republican Dede Scozzafava at 19.7%, and 22% undecided. The poll’s margin of error is +/- 5.66%. No information was provided about any of the candidates prior to the ballot question.
This is the third poll done for the Club for Growth in the NY-23 special election, and Doug Hoffman is the only candidate to show an increase in his support levels in each successive poll. The momentum in the race is clearly with Hoffman.

Meanwhile… Pro-Obama Stimulus Plan Dede Scozzafava campaigned with Pro-Obama Stimulus Senator Susan Collins this weekend.

Talk about out of touch– The NRCC will spend $200,000 to $300,000 on “TV ads propping up Scozzafava in the days leading up to the Nov. 3 contest and plans to keep up a near relentless barrage of press releases slamming Hoffman.”
What a disgrace.
UPDATE: Tim Pawlenty endorsed conservative Doug Hoffman today.
