A spokesman for Doug Hoffman's congressional campaign has just confirmed reports that the Saranac Lake accountant will indeed remain in the race and actively campaign on the Conservative line.
As of today, Matt Doheny has officially defeated Hoffman for the Republican line. But the hopes of the Doheny camp that Hoffman would withdraw from the race and back the Watertown banker will remain unrealized.
Hoffman campaign spokesman Rob Ryan put the massive amount of speculation to bed only minutes ago.
"Yes, he will be actively running on the CP line," Ryan told WNBZ.
The revelation may prove to be a huge windfall for Congressman Bill Owens's reelection bid.
