For readers following the race in New York’s 23rd congressional district (upstate NY), the Club for Growth has released a new poll showing conservative candidate Doug Hoffman leading by four points.

Hoffman, with 31.3% in the poll, leads Democrat Bill Owens (27%) and Republican challenger Dede Scozzafava (19.7%).

This race in rural upstate New York has garnered national attention and endorsements from prominent conservatives.  Newt Gingrich has endorsed Scozzafava, while Sarah Palin and Dick Armey have endorsed Hoffman.

New York Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava is the Republican candidate in a special election for New York’s 23rd district congressional seat.  She was hand-picked by party bosses, although many conservatives believe she is too liberal and prefer Doug Hoffman, who is running on the New York Conservative Party line.

So, last night, Scozzafava was at a speaking engagement, following which Weekly Standard editor John McCormack tried to ask her some questions about her positions.  That didn’t go well, to say the least.  Someone on Scozzafava’s staff called the cops on McCormack.  Read the whole story here.

Would McCormack’s infraction be categorized as “Questioning a thin-skinned political hack under the influence of conservatism?”

Another great choice, Republicans!
