Wait, what?

Straight from the Doheny4Congress website, crazy press release!
Oh, wait, not THAT Bill Owens...
Former Colorado governor backs Republican businessman in 21st race

WATERTOWN – Matt Doheny has a new ally in his bid for the 21st Congressional District seat: Bill Owens.

(I particularly like that lede. Here is the rest of the release)

“Matt Doheny is committed to keeping taxes low, eliminating unnecessary regulation and improving our aging infrastructure – all pro-growth solutions I championed while governor of Colorado,” said Owens, who served from 1999 to 2007. “We need more people like Matt who have the business background and knowledge that can help guide Congress through our toughest issues. That’s why I’m proud to support Matt – and I urge everyone in upstate New York to do the same this Election Day.”

(I wonder if they sought out Gov. Owens for the endorsement? Seems like they must have... unless the former governor frequently Googles his own name and decided he had to get in on the election action. Either way, good to know what a former Colorado governor thinks about North Country politics)

Doheny added: “Gov. Owens showed true leadership by finding bipartisan solutions to some of Colorado’s biggest issues – and implemented them without breaking the bank. The people of Colorado rewarded his hard work by overwhelmingly electing him to a second term. I truly thank the former governor for his support of my campaign.”
