Here’s a quote from my interview with Mark Barie, head of the UNYTEA tea party group in Plattsburgh, reacting to Doug Hoffman’s decision to run as a 3rd-party Conservative.
“It’s a very disappointing decision to me. [Doug Hoffman is] out of money, he has no campaign staff. He seems to be reliving the dream that occurred in 2009.
His chance of defeating Doheny, much less Doheny and Owens from a 3rd party line with no staff and no money are remote at best.
All he’s really doing is making it easier for [Democratic congressman] Bill Owens to achieve victory.”
