Republican Matt Doheny hopes to win with local issues in the NY-23 primary

This summer, we're checking in with the candidates vying for seats in congress, asking about the issues that are shaping their campaigns. One of the fiercest contests is the Republican primary for the 23rd district, which stretches from Watertown to Plattsburgh to Saranac Lake.

Doug Hoffman is a favorite of tea party activists and national conservative groups. But Matt Doheny has drawn widespread support from the North Country's Republican Party. Brian Mann caught up with Doheny campaigning in Willsboro and has our story.  Go to full article

Seeking a second term, Democrat Bill Owens defends the Federal stimulus

Since 2006, Democrats have captured all three House seats that represent the North Country.

Those seats had been safe Republican strongholds, and their loss helped push New York's GOP to the brink.

But this year, Republicans are pushing back hard, hoping to capitalize on public dissatisfaction with the sour economy and growing Federal deficits.

Bill Owens from Plattsburgh, Scott Murphy from Glens Falls and Mike Arcuri from Utica all face stiff, well-funded challenges.

In the coming weeks, we'll air a series of stories looking at all the candidates and at the issues that will shape the November election.

This morning, Brian Mann reports on Bill Owens. As part of his bid for a second term, Owens has embraced President Barack Obama's Federal stimulus plan.  Go to full article

NY23 Race: Hoffman takes on government spending & GOP "party bosses"

Last year, Lake Placid accountant Doug Hoffman emerged as a symbol of the national tea party movement. In the 23rd district special election, the Conservative candidate toppled Republican Dede Scozzafava, before falling short in his race against Democrat Bill Owens.

This year, Hoffman is back and he's running in the Republican primary against Watertown businessman Matthew Doheny. In the early going, Doheny has out-fundraised Hoffman. Doheny has also picked up far more support from local Republican leaders, who chair county committees in the district. But Doug Hoffman says his campaign will once again tap into grassroots anger at Washington DC.

Note: Tomorrow, David Sommerstein will sit down to talk with Watertown businessman Matt Doheny.  Go to full article
