Minuteman PAC backs Hoffman in N.Y. special

Another conservative group is backing Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman over the Republican New York special election nominee.

The Minuteman PAC announced its support for Hoffman on Wednesday, calling Republican Dede Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens both "liberals."

"In a race that pits conservative Doug Hoffman against two liberals with egregious records and positions concerning national security and sovereignty, our endorsement for Hoffman is really a no-brainer," PAC executive director Brian Farley said.
