Rick endorses Doug Hoffman...

I received this email today from Rick... he is joining Sarah Palin and other prominent conservatives in endorsing Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman over liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava in the 23rd Congressional District of up state New York...

Dear Friends and Supporters,

A New York Special Election? Why would Texans care about that?

The special election in New York's 23rd Congressional district next Tuesday could send a message to the Washington, D.C. establishment that conservatives must stand for our principles: limited government, lower taxes, and free enterprise.

I am supporting Doug Hoffman, the only real conservative in the race. I urge you to join me in supporting Doug by contributing generously to him at his website today!

Doug Hoffman is the true conservative candidate in NY-23, and he needs your help today to put him over the top! He wins if he can afford to turn out his voters next Tuesday.

There is a reason that our party lost power in Washington, D.C. A lot of folks went to Congress wearing the Republican jersey, but far too many played the game like Democrats. People all around Texas— and frankly, all around this country— are fed up with the federal government running up trillion-dollar deficits and mortgaging our kids' future. From Obamacare to cap-and-trade, there are simply too many critical issues at stake right now to send yet another rubber stamp for this administration to Washington.

Electing Doug Hoffman will send a clear message that cannot be denied: conservatives must stand on principle.

I hope you will contribute to Doug online right now. He is in a great position to win this election. He just needs the resources to get his conservative message out and turn out his conservative voters.

God Bless,
Rick Perry

Very interesting for any sitting Texas Republican governor to buck the party and endorse the Conservative Party candidate in another state... but we live in interesting times...

    Kay Bailey Hutchison, behind the curve yet again.


    As a former NY'er (downstate, not up...) I find this an impressive turn of events.


Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
