Yesterday, it was Democratic candidate for Congress Bill Owens in Oswego County.Ã‚Â Today, it’s surging Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman.
Hoffman holds two events today in Fulton.
He will open a campaign headquarters at 10:45 am at 2 W. 1st St. N., the former Joice and Burch store.
He then heads to Mimi’s, as all candidates eventually do, for a round of handshaking beginning at about noon.
Three candidates are running to replace John McHugh as the Congressman from the 23rd District.Ã‚Â Hoffman, the Conservative Party’s candidate, has a load of national support from conservative Republicans who are bucking their party’s choice, moderate Republican Dede Scozzafava.Ã‚Â Independent polls have shown that the Democrat in the race, Bill Owens, holds a small lead.
