Doug Hoffman is seeking a re-match against Rep. Bill Owens (D) in 2010, after losing their special election race Nov. 4 by approximately three thousand votes.

In a lengthy message on his campaign Web site, Hoffman wrote that he is moving “Full speed ahead to 2010” after deciding not to contest the election results, which were finalized Monday.

“This gives us time to carefully articulate and communicate thoughtful positions on issues that impact the great people of our district and ensure that our campaign promises are NOT broken,” he wrote. “We take away lessons from this year’s campaign that will make us stronger and more competitive in the future. Next time we will be better prepared,” Hoffman added.
