NY 23 - National vs. local

The Watertown Daily Times interviews Congressman Sherwood Boehlert about the special election. The Republican moans about the decisive attacks by the conservatives.
"We are now a regional party" restricted to Texas and the South, said Mr. Boehlert, who said the party needs to broaden its appeal to become a national party again.
But, it's the Conservative Doug Hoffman who has made this a national election. And attracted support from all across the country.
The Republican - Dede Scozzafava - knows her local issues. But she's getting swamped on the national side.
The next four days, and the upcoming Siena poll, will tell the direction we're going headed into Election Day.
