The Oswego County Chair of the Conservative Party says he is not so sure about who will appear on his party's line for Congress in the upcoming NNY race pitting Matt Doheny against Democrat incumbent, Rep. Bill Owens.
County Chair Len Schick says he is not certain that his group will back a cross endorse of likely GOP nominee Doheny, although most observers think the party's state chair, Mike Long, will not repeat the Doug Hoffman scenario that is widely thought to have allowed Mr. Owens reelection in 2010.
Doheny's possible challenger is now calling herself the "principled conservative" in the race and that perhaps is a window into the strategy of Kellie Greene, who is an Oswego County native who recently moved back to NNY after years of living in AZ.
Principles aside, the Conservative Party must cross endorse if it hopes to block Mr. Owens.
I just don't see anyway Chairman Long goes off the reservation on this one.
