Massa to resign. Special election to be held.

That's right! New York's 29th congressional district will be holding a special election within the next few weeks, offering local Republicans an excellent chance to retake the longheld Republican district when Congressman Massa resigns next week and Governor Paterson declares a special election that must be held.

New York Democratic Rep. Eric Massa, the subject of a harassment complaint by a male staffer, is stepping down from his seat, The Associated Press has learned.

Knowledgeable Democratic officials told AP that Massa, who has announced he will not seek reelection due to a recurrence of cancer, is resigning his seat, effective Monday.

Massa's resignation comes as the House ethics panel was reviewing a harassment complaint by a male staffer who reportedly felt uncomfortable in a situation with Massa that had sexual overtones.

New York has been the location of two interesting special elections during the Obama administration, both of which have resulted in close Republican losses.

There is one significant difference: Tom Reed, the Mayor of Corning and the leading Republican candidate who should receive the nomination when local Republican Chairmen meet, will receive the Conservative endorsement as well. Removing all political indifference within our movement.

This is great news for Conservatives and Republicans across America, because we now have the chance to replace a reliable liberal hack with a steadfast Conservative who is focused on principle.
