Now that the Daily Kos poll is out showing Hoffman only one point behind the Democrat Owens and Scozzafava dropping to last place, the NRCC is now sounding a welcoming note to conservative upstart Doug Hoffman.
From Politico [emphasis added mine]
On Thursday afternoon, Sessions appeared to tacitly acknowledge that Hoffman may represent the GOP’s best chance to keep the Republican-held seat from being picked up by a Democrat.
“I think it’s pretty clear that a person who would vote for John Boehner, support tax cuts, support growing our economy, and defeat Nancy Pelosi’s tax and spend agenda will be really welcome in our conference, and I think having a person who can win that district off that message would be really good for the Republican Party,” Sessions said.

Therein lies the problem for the NRCC. “That message” as Pete Sessions puts it, is the message that the GOP should be putting forward regardless of where the race is held. It is my believe that one of the very reasons why Chris Christie stands a very good chance of losing on Tuesday is because he has put forward a very weak conservative message against the huge tax and spend Corzine. Even now Christie is wasting time getting into a “fat fight”.
On Tuesady should Doug Hoffman pull out a win, there will be shockwaves sent though both the Democrat and Republican parties. Both parties would have been served notice that the electorate is more than willing to support third party candidates that have their heads screwed on right.
