Political fallout continues in NY-23

Listen to this story
Political fallout continues this week following Republican Matt Doheny's defeat in the 23rd district House race.

Doheny lost to Democrat Bill Owens by roughly 5 thousand votes.

More than 9 thousand votes went to Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, who had dropped out of the race in early October.

Yesterday, Hoffman's campaign sent out a press release denying that he had played the role of "spoiler."

He blamed Doheny's loss on bad decision-making by Republican "party bosses."

The Doheny campaign fired back, telling the Watertown Daily Times that Hoffman refused to help the Republican candidate beat Bill Owens.

Brian Mann spoke last night about this on-going political feud with Mark Barie, head of the Plattsburgh-based tea-party group UNYTEA.
