Massena, NY, Jul 16, 2012 — In the past couple of elections, third party candidates have had big effects on North Country political campaigns. In 2010, Conservative party candidate Doug Hoffman reshaped the outcome of the NY-23 House race. This year, Donald Hassig will be on the Green Party ballot for the 21st congressional district. It's unclear what effect his campaign will have on the 2012 election. Natasha Haverty reports.
