Matt Doheny says he has travelled 20,000 miles this past Winter listening to residents of the sprawling 15,000 square mile 23rd Congressional District.
He calls it a "listen and learn" tour and in a letter to local leaders Mr. Doheny outlined some of his findings which he says show the public is "fed up and disgusted" with Congress.
The Doheny candidacy has been in operation for some time, but the candidate says he will officially announce soon...
I love how the MSM allows candidates to campaign for months but don't call them a candidate until they officially announce.
Doheny is a solid candidate with youth and enthusiasm on his side. His prospects in the GOP primary are good as party poobahs are behind him....
Name recognition and the preference of Tea Party voters are certainly things he needs to overcome in his bid to defeat fellow Republican Doug Hoffman.
By the way, has the MSM checked on Mr. Hoffman's new residence in Saranac Lake ? Check with the Franklin County clerk and the BOE...I think they are in Malone.
Anyway, this should be an interesting race as will the November battle against Rep. Bill Owens, who has been highly visible since his Ascension to DC last fall.
