99 NEWS FOR TUESDAY, 2/21/12
COUNTY CONSERVATIVE COMMITTEE ENDORSES DOHENY CONGRESS—St.Lawrence County party chairman Hank Ford told 99 News Monday the panel voted unanimously last Thursday in favor of the Republican, running for the GOP nod to face off against Democrat Bill Owens in the New York-23rd this November. The endorsement was made despite the presence of more conservative candidate Kellie Greene and the possibility conservative Doug Hoffman could run again. Ford says the committee chose Doheny because he's the only one who could beat Owens if he unites all the right-leaning parties like he says he can. Doheny has apparently agreed to vote, if in office, with the far-right against abortion although he has stated publicly many times his personal belief in a woman's right to choose.
