Corwin In Good Position For Conservative Party Nod

March 2, 2011
Bellavia has made Corwin's position on abortion a central part of his campaign. The state assemblywoman has said she supports legalized abortion in the first trimester, but does not support late-term or partial birth abortions. He reiterated that he would reserve making a decision on an independent run until after the Conservative Party votes, but said he is beginning to set up a campaign infrastructure and has had talks with every major party in the state. "We are fundraising, and we do have people across the country who are raising money, and we have fundraisers planned," said Bellavia. "We're doing everything we can. We're gearing up and raising money, and if they make that decision, we'll be ready to go." Republicans are eager to avoid another divisive situation like the one that occurred in New York's 23rd District special election in 2009, when the a split between the Republican Party's choice of Dede Scozzafava and the Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman helped Democrat Bill Owens capture the seat. But Long said those comparisons aren't relevant to this situation. "The Republican Party tried to ram down the throats of the Conservative Party a liberal Republican who clearly did not represent our beliefs," said Long. "In this case, no one is trying to ram anyone down anyone's throat." Even Bellavia backed off terming Corwin a "liberal Republican," saying only that he believed she was a "weaker candidate." "I think I'm more conservative," said Bellavia. "She's not a liberal and she's not a left-winger. She's a moderate New York Republican. I'm not."
