In New York State, the Conservative Party is about as right wing as they come. The Conservative Party people don't just want their candidates to stand over in the right wing - they want candidates to go on over to the farthest corner of the right wing and rub themselves up and down against the wall. You want fringe? The Conservative Party is covered with fringe from head to toe.
So, it's really quite scary to see that Ray Meier, the Republican frontrunner in the conressional race here in New York's 24th District, got a right wing approval rating from the Conservative Party of 88 percent.
