Watertown, MA, Feb 21, 2012 — There are growing signs that Republican challenger Matt Doheny from Watertown will have a clear shot at challenging Democratic congressman Bill Owens.
Two years ago, Doheny struggled with third-party Conservative Doug Hoffman also in the race.
But St. Lawrence County Conservatives now say they are endorsing Doheny in this year's contest. Conservative chairman Hank Ford issued a statement yesterday calling Doheny "a true fiscal conservative."
In 2010, Plattsburgh's Bill Owens prevailed by just 2,000 votes, despite the fact that Republican and Conservative votes were divided.
The 23rd district race is expected to be one of the most competitive in the country.
