Republican Scozzafava Endorses Democrat After Exiting N.Y.
Well, isn't this special! The extremely liberal republican Dede Scozzafava has dropped out of the race and endorsed the democrat instead of the conservative, Doug Hoffman, who has been endorse by Sarah Palin and most of Big Talk Radio:
Republican Dede Scozzafava endorsed her former Democratic opponent Sunday in the race for an upstate New York congressional seat, shaking up the contest for the second day in a row after exiting the race Saturday.Newt Gingrich, among others in the republican party, endorsed the liberal Scozzafava over the conservative Hoffman. Who will Gingrich and the liberal republicans endorse now...the democrat who Scozzafava has thrown her support to, or the conservative. This will be a very interesting race.
Scozzafava dropped out after Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman experienced a late-in-the-game surge. The move was expected to consolidate GOP voters behind Hoffman on Tuesday.
But on Sunday, Scozzafava issued a written statement in which she backed Democrat Bill Owens.
