Doheny gets Tea Party endorsement

Plattsburgh, New York - September 29, 2010

The Tea Party is throwing its support behind a new candidate in the race for Congress in Northern New York.

The group is backing Republican Matt Doheny, who won the GOP primary-- beating Doug Hoffman who the Tea Party had originally endorsed. Hoffman is staying in the race as a Conservative Party candidate, but the head of the Tea Party says the majority of its members now support Doheny.

Doheny and Hoffman are both challenging incumbent Congressman Bill Owens, a Democrat, who won the seat in a special election last November.
