In the latest, strangest twist in the race for NY-23, Hoffman declared Beck a "mentor" of his, and told the radio/television host that he'll "keep in touch" with people like him once he's elected:
HOFFMAN: I have good mentors here.
GLENN: Wait, wait. Wait, wait. Are they mentors that will show -
HOFFMAN: I'm talking about you, Glenn.
GLENN: Oh, okay. I was going to say all right, as long as they are standing out from the shadows. [...]
HOFFMAN: No. Yeah, well, I'm going to keep in touch with people like you so I don't get infected with that disease.
