Busi­ness­man Matt Do­heny (R) an­nounced he will not be on the In­de­pend­ence Party line on the bal­lot after los­ing the Re­pub­lic­an primary race to former White House aide Elise Stefanik (R), Wa­ter­town’s WWNY re­ports.

“I am not go­ing to be Doug Hoff­man,” Do­heny said, re­fer­ring to a Con­ser­vat­ive Party can­did­ate who lost in a 2009 spe­cial elec­tion, split­ting the Re­pub­lic­an vote with Dede Scozza­fava (R), al­low­ing Rep. Bill Owens (D) to win.

Do­heny en­dorsed Stefanik, who will face doc­u­ment­ary film­maker Aaron Woolf (D) in the race for Owens’s seat.
