Republican Dede Scozzafava has dropped out of next Tuesday’s NY 23 special election. She did not endorse either of her two opponents, Conservative party candidate Doug Hoffman or Democrat Bill Owens.
Scozzafava’s statement here. I think she made the wrong decision, but the statement is pure class.
Before this development, the race was neck-and-neck between Hoffman and Owens, polling at approximately 35 percent each. With Scozzafava’s 20 percent now up for grabs, I suspect this will be as interesting a three days as any in political history.
