Austin Cassidy reports at Uncovered Politics that Doug Hoffman got 6% as a Conservative Party candidate in NY-23, despite suspending his campaign before the election. Just as in the special election in 2009, Hoffman’s votes represented more than the margin of victory. Democrat Bill Owens won both elections.
And, in the race for Suffolk County Family Court judge, Conservative Bernard C. Cheng beat both a Democrat and a Republican.
The NY Conservative Party endorses Republicans in most races; these are some of the exceptions.
