Received this statement from a group of conservative Colorado Republican legislators who are lending their support to NY-23 conservative candidate Doug Hoffman. They tell me they “hope the effect will be to energize other Republican state legislators around the country to do the same:”
Colorado Republican legislators Sen. Scott Renfroe, Sen. Kevin Lundberg, Sen. Greg Brophy, Sen. Dave Schultheis and Rep. Kent Lambert are pleased to endorse Republican Doug Hoffman, candidate for the 23rd Congressional District of New York. A liberal Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, is supported by the New York GOP in a contest that has not had the benefit of a primary election. Assemblywoman Scozzafava’s views do not reflect the conservative principles set forth in the Republican Platform.
The Republican establishment should stop supporting candidates that merely call themselves Republicans to get elected, and whose actions then undermine principled Republican legislation. We should represent our loyal Party members better by heeding their warnings against compromising Republican principles. Unlike Scozzafava’s views, the Republican Party Platform is pro-life, pro-capitalist, and pro-traditional marriage, and is opposed to radical leftist groups like ACORN.
Liberal Democrat issues are not in the best interest of the citizens of the United States, and therefore should be rejected by the Republican Party if we want this nation to survive and thrive as a beacon of light to the world. This is not just a local New York issue. Republicans throughout America should insist that their Party back candidates worthy of their support, not liberals supported by Democratic leaders and Barack Obama.
We are thrilled to have found that Doug Hoffman will stand firm for freedom, liberty, limited government and the other values that Republicans hold dear.
Please consider helping Doug by visiting his official website and joining us in supporting his campaign.
