Mitt Romney’s Empire State Endorsements

…the former Massachusetts governor — whose team was behind the headline-making win of Bay State Sen. Scott Brown  — is lending his name to (and opening his wallet) these NY Congressional hopefuls: Incumbent Reps. Pete King and Chris Lee, Randy Altschuler

“At a time when we need leaders who will enact pro-growth policies that will turn our troubled economy around and put people back to work, too many Washington politicians are instead focused on growing the size of government. New York – and our nation – deserves leaders who will put the interests of the people ahead of the special interests, and work to get our economy back on track. That is why I am proud to stand with these candidates today,” said Romney.

Randy is facing incumbent Rep. Tim Bishop (D) in November.

McLaughlin: The Only Republican Candidate Who Can Beat Tim Bishop is Randy Altschuler

McLaughlin suggests that if Randy Altschuler does not get the Republican nomination Christopher Cox or George Demos will not be able to unseat NY-01’s Rep Tim Bishop.

“If a candidate is to win in this district this year, then they must have the Conservative Party line. If another candidate gets the Republican line they will not be able to generate the support necessary to win in November without the Conservative endorsement.”

Only a fusion GOPer can beat Bishop

The Conservative Party candidate locked in a GOP primary for Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop’s seat has an internal polling memo showing that only a fusion candidate with the “C” and “R” lines can win that right-tilting district in the fall.

The memo, obtained by POLITICO, was done by pollster John McLaughlin, who’s working with businessman Randy Altschuler, the Conservative line candidate for the seat in which the GOP chips are still falling.

The memo basically suggests that the other candidates in the GOP field, which includes Christopher Cox, the grandson of Richard Nixon and son of the New York state GOP chairman, and former SEC attorney George Demos, are spoilers.

Randy Altschuler Stands with the Club for Growth, Renews Pledge to Repeal Obamacare

Randy Altschuler’s Blog: The Club for Growth REPEAL IT! Pledge is a no-nonsense affirmation of my belief that the health care plan pushed through Congress by Tim Bishop, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama is bad for taxpayers and bad for America. This legislation will raise taxes and increase the deficit, while not improving health care for the average American. Real health care will come when we have Tort Reform, a lifting of state barriers on health insurance and a host of other free enterprise solutions. Any candidate for Congress, Republican or Democrat should sign this pledge if they sincerely believe in reforming the American health care system.
