Doug Hoffman Drops Out of NY-23, Clearing Field For Republican Nominee

If you didn't know -- Doug Hoffman, the guy we all wanted to displace Dede Scozzafinnochio or whatever -- attempted to run (this time in a genuine primary) for the Republican nomination, and lost a narrow election against the ultimate nominee, Matt Doheney.

But then Hoffman refused to exit the race -- remaining on the Conservative Party ballot line, splitting the conservative vote and throwing the race to the Democrat. Again. (I don't mean he's to blame again, but it would be a second time for the Democrat winning the seat due to a split conservative/Republican vote.)

Well he's finally decided to drop out.

“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 strongly urge 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 aside and 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.

Good on ya, Hoffie.
