You may remember my previous post HERE where I talked about the NY-23 Race. I noted there that Robert Stacy McCain has been saying, “Grassroots: Stop Asking What You Can Do and Start Doing What You Can.”
And, apparently, you are indeed. Big names are stepping up to endorse Hoffman in NY-23. Big Republican names, going against their own party’s candidate, which is not just significant — It’s a 10.0 earth tremor on the political Landscape.
The local Republican County Chairman . He’s disowning his own candidate and calling on her to quit now.
And the endorsements keep rolling in:
Former TX Rep. Dick Armey
Former PA Senator Rick Santorum.
And who is supporting Dede Scozzafava for election?
, who are giving heavily to both Scozzafava *and* her Democrat opponent.
Even one-time Republican stalwart Newt Gingrich has endorsed Scozzafava, which just goes to show two things:
- Look before you leap; check out the candidate before you automatically endorse the Republican, Newt!
- Newt’s best days are very likely past him, as this is an irreversible gaffe, in my opinion. Forget 2010, newt.
All holy heck is breaking loose in upstate New York, and it’s a harbinger of the 2010 and 2012 elections, I have no doubt. If you thought the Tea Parties were a “summer Fling,” think again.
FLASH: As I write this, Rush Limbaugh notes that 73% of GOP Voters Say Congressional Republicans Have Lost Touch With Their Base, according to Rasmussen today. Plus the White House appears to have given up in the VA Gubernatorial race!
FLASH 2: Doug Hoffman’s Twitter site (@dougforcongress) reports Steve Forbes has endorsed him this morning, too.
Oh Boy. Review all the NY-23 coverage at The #TCOT Report.
